The First Heading
- CRAFT Tech released CRUNCH CFD Version 3.0 with a new flamelet model, mesh adaption and more.
- The 2nd AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshop will be held prior to this summer’s Joint Propulsion Conference in Cleveland, Ohio. The CFD test cases are available for download (registration required).
- CGNS, the CFD data standard for portable and interoperable grid and flow solver data, is an AIAA recommended practice as well as an ANSI standard. An updated version of CGNS’ SIDS (standard interface data structures) is up for review and comment through 16 May.
- Desktop Engineering writes about CAE simulation of arterial stents including CFD with STAR-CCM+.
The Second Heading

- The Imperial College of London has an opening for a PhD studentship in high-order grid generation for CFD.
- OpenBoundaries is looking for volunteers to test their “remote CAD on demand.”
- Converge CFD is now available in the cloud via Rescale. [I can’t remember whether I posted this already or not so forgive the possible duplication.]
- Two eye-catching videos:
At Least It’s Not Paint
I promised to never post another photograph of thrown, spilled or tossed paint. So here’s one of sand from Claire Droppert’s series called Sand Creatures in which she seeks to “capture earth’s different elements and let them stand out in their natural surroundings using moments of zero gravity.”
P.S. The headings are not a mistake. I simply wasn’t inspired to organize the links today.
P.P.S. My original “back page” article got too long so I’ll spin it off as its own post for next week. Sorry about the sand.
