  • Pointwise asks you to complete a brief survey on your use of CAD geometry for meshing. A small thank-you gift is involved.
  • Onshape’s Jon Hirschtick shares thoughts on the history of CAD as it changed from serving the elite to serving us all.
  • Speaking of Onshape, they launched an education plan.
  • NVIDIA calls their recently announced $129,000, 170 teraflop DGX-1 a “supercomputer in a box” [as opposed, I assume, to “in a room.”].
  • Here’s a link to NASA Langley’s Turbulence Modeling Resource.
  • The 5th Workshop on Grid Generation for Numerical Computations (Tetrahedron V) will be held 4-5 July 2016 at the University of Liege [sorry for the lack of diacriticals] in Belgium.
  • ANSYS now offers a pay-per-use license.
  • Here’s a blog post about a couple of the industry analyst presentations at COFES.
  • All three sessions of the Friendship Systems and Simscale webinar on F-1 aerodynamics are now online.
  • GrabCAD has a nice write-up on 3D printed parts and meshing.
  • Last week at COFES I saw a demo of Sandia’s work on topology optimization and it’s as close to magic as I’ve seen on a computer.
  • Speaking of COFES, Kubotek launched their new 3D geometry kernel, KCM.
  • NASA’s University Leadership Initiative seeks academics to partner on aeronautics research.
  • Speaking of NASA, Langley Research Center seeks to hire a Research Computer Scientist for CFD.
  • Flow Science blogged about simulating Pelton turbines.
  • Documentation for the Wind-US CFD code was updated.
