April 2016: See the Invisible

The theme for this month's newsletter is seeing the invisible. Whether you want to better see your Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) results, or you want to see the airflow around your vehicle in full technicolor, then this is the newsletter for you. OK, the vehicle thing, with Colorful Fluid Dynamic Paint was an April Fools' joke, but you already knew that, right?

March 2016: Trucks, Rules, and a Sneak Peek

What do truck design, rules for fluid dynamics, and a Caedium sneak peek all have in common? You guessed it, they are all topics covered in this month's newsletter. So enough from me, over to you and away you go.

Challenging Orthodox Truck Design

While marginal gains are all the rage in cycling, US trucks by comparison are a target rich environment when it comes to external aerodynamics. Specifically the name of the game in haulage is to minimize fuel costs and that translates directly to minimizing drag.

Caedium CFD Sneak Peek: Conjugate Heat Transfer

The next release of the Caedium CFD software system will be able to simulate Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT). CHT models the heat transfer due to conduction through a solid or shell, coupled with fluid convection at shared boundaries.

Results Setup For CFD

Before you press the run button for your Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation you should configure your results to provide feedback on the simulation's progress. In most modern CFD systems, such as Caedium, you can use co-processing to update your results simultaneously while your CFD simulation runs. Assuming you have the option to co-process your CFD results then here are some helpful tips on how to proceed.

CFD for Your SMB

Being a small business ourselves we understand that one of the key issue that drives many Small-to-Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) is efficient resource allocation. For Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations, our area of expertise, that means the SMB wants their needs precisely met in terms of pricing, features, and support. To address these issues, Symscape offers flexible duration subscriptions to Caedium that include support and various bundled features in Caedium add-ons. There are no initial sign up fees and no re-sign up fees.
