This Week in CFD

RevSlider_Knacke_Diss_30P30NThis week’s CFD news includes a survey to take on simulation in the cloud and a good article faceted geometry models for 3-D printing (and the rest of us). Fans of CFD history will enjoy the interview with John Swanson. Plus there’s all the usual software releases, events, and CFD applications. The image shown here illustrates some of the expertise of a new CFD company, Upstream CFD. Continue reading

I have always enjoyed learning new things, meeting people, and learning more about them, so I guess you could say that sales was in my future.

This Week in CFD

boilingFor job seekers, four job openings are included in this week’s CFD news. There’s an interesting insight into why the cloud is more suited to simulation now than it’s ever been. And borrowing a great idea from the SC conference, what technical paper do you think has most deeply influenced CFD? Cast your vote in the comments after you read all the details. The image here is from an MIT article about simulating boiling. Continue reading

This Week in CFD

Large_Eddy_Simulation_With_Adaptive_Mesh_RefinementThis week’s roundup of CFD news is full of even more things to read including the latest installment of a series comparing different CFD software and the latest from an NSF funded effort to create a new CFD software infrastructure. Then there’s reading about writing and writing about reading. It’s all very meta. The image shown here is a CONVERGE CFD result from Resolved Analytic’s comparison of semi-comprehensive CFD software.

This Week in CFD

orca-5415Today’s post should be called This Week in Applied CFD because it’s virtually all applications of CFD or meshing or visualization. This is actually a good thing because use of CFD to obtain engineering data is what it’s all about. Shown here is an Orca3D CFD result for the DTMB 5415 hull.
