This Week in CFD

Welcome to another gaggle of news from the world of CFD and computational simulation. It would be a shame to not lead with the International Meshing Roundtable. Included herein are articles about a very cool application of flow jets to provide V/STOL capabilities and a list of tips for engineering students. Speaking of students, you are invited to apply for the two summer internships here in Fort Worth. Other things you’ll find inside are nasal surgery, the 3rd Automotive CFD Workshop, hydrogen combustion, plenty of job openings, and the proverbial much, much more. Shown here is Seattle’s Space Needle in a Mach 4 flow. Read that again slowly. You’ll have to read on to learn why.

This Week in CFD

Welcome to the end of another active week in the world of CFD. Highpoints include ten myths about aerodynamics, seven wrong beliefs about meshing, and the five stages of hype. One of the bigger news items is Siemens’ launch of GPU accelerated CFD. And one of the most interesting news items is a call for free and open publication of all research articles. For those of you interested in CFD workshops, we have news about two: one for aeroelasticity and another for road vehicle aerodynamics. The image shown here is a dye visualization of vortices over a delta wing seen on FYFD.

This Week in CFD

During the past week we’ve seen plenty of CFD articles themed around Valentine’s Day, the Super Bowl, and the Olympics. A few are included herein. This week’s cornucopia of CFD news fills the holiday void (until Easter) with plenty of CFD jobs, events, a few software releases, and a very elegant description of a computational geometry algorithm. The image shown here is from a CFD simulation of blood flow in the heart including details of the heart’s leaflet valves done by Waseda and Rice Universities.
