This Week in CFD

Thirty-four days until Thanksgiving. Sixty-five until Xmas. Seventy-one until 2022 is over. But only one day until the weekend. Let’s celebrate small victories with big news from the wonderful world of CFD. We have some tips on writing technical papers and a 2,000+ page paper on math for machine learning. Lots of event news including next year’s CadenceLIVE and this December’s HiFiLeD. Plus quantum computing, CFD applications, and more. Shown here is an image from work by Laizet et al on simulations of turbulent flow with moving objects on a moving mesh. (Coincidentally, Dr. Laizet is one of the keynote speakers at December’s HiFiLeD.)

SAVE THE DATE: CadenceLIVE Silicon Valley 2023 will be held 19-20 April and the call for papers is now open. It’s time to share how you’re putting Fidelity CFD to use.

Ah, turbulence. We all love it, right? On a flight, in our CFD. If that’s you, come to Brussels on 14-16 December for the HiFiLeD Symposium on all things related to turbulence and transition. You have until 31 October to submit your abstract. Or if you’d just rather hear others present, know that the keynote speakers include Ricardo Vinuesa, Sylvian Laizet, Cetin Kiris, Kunal Puri, and Chris Rumsey.

How much of the drag of a racing bike (the ones that are used on those high-banked indoor tracks) comes from the rider? They say it’s about 80%. CFD to the rescue.

What is the optimum ratio of (super)computer performance to energy consumption and is the energy use of current exascale systems a “dirty secret?”

If a paper’s abstract is the last thing you write, maybe the introduction should be the next to last. Jim Kurose provides a simple formula for writing your paper’s introduction.

• First para: Motivation
• Second para: State the specific problem addressed.
• Third para: Summarize paper’s contribution.
• Fourth para: Compare and contrast to other work.
• Fifth para: Describe what follows in the paper.

It is merely coincidental that also this week some tips on writing an abstract (from Nature) landed in my Twitter feed.
