A new year calls for new software releases and new job openings and that’s what you’ll find in this week’s smattering of CFD news. For those of you with time to read, there’s material on geometry modeling, web-based UI development, turbulence modeling, adaptive mesh generation, and more. Shown here are CFD results for transmission stators.

Our friends at nTopology have quite a sense of humor because when I first saw their “Employees Must Clean Meshes” stickers I literally LOLd. (And I didn’t even notice “Death to STL” below the image.)
And they’re a nice bunch of people too because when I shared online that I loved that sticker, look what arrived in the mail a few weeks later.
Now if I just knew someone I could share some of these with.
Update: Reworded the last sentence to clarify the meaning.
