CadenceLIVE: Pointwise and Numeca and Cadence, oh my!

CadenceLIVE Americas 2021, a digital event on June 8th and 9th, is your opportunity to learn about the confluence of mesh generation and CFD capabilities from Pointwise and Numeca with Cadence’s Multiphysics Systems Analysis portfolio of simulation software.

The CFD presentations are all on the event’s first day, June 8th.

  • 10:15-10:45 a.m. PDT (UTC-7) – How Computational Fluid Dynamics Extends Cadence’s Multiphysics System Analysis and Design
  • 10:50-11:20 a.m. PDT (UTC-7) – OMNIS, from Meshing to Solving to Optimization, in One Single Multiphysics Environment
  • 11:25–11:55 a.m. PDT (UTC-7) – Pointwise – The Choice for CFD Meshing

Details about all of CadenceLIVE Americas including how to register can be found on the event page at Cadence’s website. Don’t delay – register today.

31 May 2021: Updated the order of the presentations.

This Week in CFD

This week’s CFD news includes both an image of the week and an application of the week – draw your own conclusions. We’re still seeing a lot of online events but I am happy that AIAA SciTech 2022 looks to be an online and in-person event. See you in San Diego. Lots of financial results, lots of meshing jobs. Plus the triumvirate of AI, GPU, and quantum computing. Shown here is a classic application of CFD to wind turbine siting. This is a plot of turbulence intensity over terrain and you can read more about the application here.

This Week in CFD

The CFD news often arrives too quickly to share it all in a timely manner. Included this week is an interesting backgrounder on AI in CFD and another excellent read about color maps and why the rainbow color map isn’t your best choice. (Recommend we all re-read Tufte’s books.) For lovers of free things there’s a list of free 3D geometry modeling software. And the application of the week is something completely wonderful. Shown here is a fan simulation computed with OMNIS.

This Week in CFD

Welcome to another adventure in curated CFD news, curated being a fancy word for “whatever I find interesting.” Lots of hypersonics this week, lots of built environment applications this week, and a couple of cool animations. And toward the end there’s an article about CAD files that I’d like to read your comments about (about which I’d like to read your comments). Shown here is a mesh you really want to get right – nuclear reactor rod bundles.

This Week in CFD

This week’s compilation of CFD news begins with a must-read article on how to choose colors properly when visualizing data. AI comes up twice this week as does Fortran which makes one wonder whether anyone’s programming AI in Fortran. There’s a hybrid event coming this November which is a great sign that we’ll get back to in-person conferences soon. If you’re a student seeking a scholarship to attend AIAA Aviation this August (online), their Diversity Scholars Program is accepting applications until the end of May. Of course there’s the whole suite of CFD applications for planes, trains, and automobiles. Shown here is a classic structured grid generated using Pointwise’s predecessor for an F-16.
