Read a case study from our friends at CRAFT Tech on meshing requirements for simulation of supercritical carbon dioxide power cycles.

We added a brief overview video about Pointwise to our YouTube channel, CFD Meshing.

CFD and towing tanks.


Speaking of CFD for water, this image from Surface Libre‘s blog illustrating the use of different simulation tools for different hydraulic applications is quite nice, don’t you think?

Sigmetrix announced computer-based GD&T training that could be used in engineering classes.

How use of simulation for tire design can improve fuel economy.

NVIDIA released Nsight Graphics 2020.2, which looks like a profiler for graphics applications.
