Something weekend this way comes (credit @etherbrian). And with the weekend you get a side order of CFD notions. After a long wait, the AIAA’s CFD Vision 2030 integration committee published their report describing progress toward the vision during 2021. There’s a fascinating video of an LES simulation of a complete turbofan engine along with the accompanying technical paper (from 2020). And you’ll have to read to the bottom of this week’s post to figure out what this image is showing.
Another reminder that the proceedings from this past summer’s 11th International Conference on CFD are now available online for your reading pleasure.
