Shown here is Meshed Grains, winner of the Art of Science contest at SUNY Binghamton. It’s an image of meshed grains of polycrystalline materials. The grains can be non-uniform in size and randomly distributed. Each grain is meshed using quadratic … Continue reading
Jobs, internships, and events seem to be the order of the week with lots of hiring and lots of announced CFD and meshing conferences. From the long-read department comes several articles on shape optimization, open-source, and geometry modeling issues. And … Continue reading
I sure could use some help. I’ve taken on a gargantuan task that’s beyond any single person’s ability. OK, maybe just beyond my ability and my capacity. What I’d like to do is crowd-source a literature search for advancements in … Continue reading
Now that I have your attention through deliberate (and all too common) misuse of the phrase “for all intents and purposes,” let’s talk about computer aided design and geometry models.
Pointwise’s research proposal on the topic of providing geometry kernel support for CFD solvers was selected for negotiation by the U.S. Air Force.
Drawing curves on the geometry model is a lot more flexible in the latest Pointwise release because it can now be done when the model lacks a consistent parametric space (like a solid model comprised of a complex quilting of … Continue reading
This week’s CFD news includes several long-ish but worthy reads on intelligence, exascale, and reading news itself. Plus the usual software and application updates. (This image courtesy of an article on CFD for F1.)
