Events

  • The Call for Submissions is now open for GTC 2017, the GPU Technology Conference.
  • The Marine Institute of the Netherlands (MARIN) is offering a course on CFD for maritime applications this November. [The little marketer in me is wondering why these fine folks don’t use “MARINe” as the short version of their name.]
  • DEVELOP3D LIVE is coming to the USA for the first time on 26 September in Boston.
  • The 7th Beta CAE International Conference will be held in Greece on 30 May – 01 June 2017.

  • NASA’s PubSpace is where you’ll be able to find for free “any NASA-funded research articles in peer-reviewed journals” within one year of publication.
  • Why do so many women leave engineering? Regarding an internship, one female participant wrote this: “The environment was creepy, with older weirdo man engineers hitting on me all the time and a sexist infrastructure was in place that kept female interns shuffling papers…”
  • Analysts forecast the global cloud CFD market to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 10.73% during the period 2016-2020. [Too bad. If it was going to grow at 10.75% I was going all in.]
  • Phys.org reports on Peter Vincent’s PyFR CFD code being a finalist for the ACM Gordon Bell Prize.
  • Hot off this morning’s Twitter feed comes a report from PTC on why top companies simulate early and often. (Registration required.)
  • IF YOU READ ONLY ONE LINK FROM THIS POST, MAKE IT THIS ONE: Monica Schnitger gives you a 10-step primer for selecting the best CAE software. [My takeaway? “Don’t think about price; think about value.”]
  • Our friends at Desktop Engineering will soon be known as Digital Engineering.
  • CFD is not just for rockets and race cars anymore. CFD  works on showers, too.
