The Rise of Cloud Computing in CFD
In this simulation we answer the question "How thermally efficient is a Christmas Pyramid" using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations.
There are numerous advantages to using open-source software packages of all types, but along with those advantage come a few catches. Part 2 of Comparing CFD Software discusses the use of OpenFOAM for CFD applications in depth, reviewing its background, capabilities, and more.
CAD-Embedded CFD Software is overhyped, but it is still a good value for some users. Part 1 of Comparing CFD Software discusses in depth the 3 most popular CAD-Embedded CFD Software: SolidWorks Flow Simulation, Autodesk CFD, and Ansys Discovery Live.
What Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software package is right for you? We take you through a pros-and-cons style comparison of the most popular CFD software on the market. Featuring SolidWorks Flow Simulation, Autodesk CFD, Discovery Live, Open-FOAM, COMSOL, CONVERGE CFD, STAR-CCM+, Fluent and many more.
We based our top ten list of best fluid dynamics inventions on a combination of the overall impact of the invention and the depth of fluids science required, asking ourselves, "What would have been the effect on society if each development had never occurred."
If you are reading this, chances are you are just getting started with CFD. Here are a few straightforward and candid thoughts based on my 15 years of experience on things to consider as you move forward with CFD. I hope some of them can help you avoid bumps along the way.
This article addresses the role of external simulation service providers in a corporate engineering strategy amidst the rapidly growing complexity of products and product development cycles currently driving an on-going "simulation revolution."
I don't know about The 12 Tanks Puzzle being a "genius test", but you can test your fluid dynamics intuition against our CFD simulations.
The use of perforated plates in controlling fluid flow is widespread. They are one of our favorite flow control devices for many situations. Check out these 5 ways perforated plates can improve your flow designs.
