Where does Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) figure in the design process? Why should you use CFD? How could you use CFD? If you are looking for answers to any of these questions, then this month's articles are a must read for you.

In this summer vacation edition newsletter read how you can slice and dice your Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models to exploit symmetry and thereby reduce your simulation sizes by 50% or more. Do you need inspiration for what to do with your new found CFD smarts over the summer? Then take a look at the articles below on the air flow around airships and through World Cup stadiums. It's all here.

This month's articles take you from the meshing world cup to the actual World Cup. The 23rd International Meshing Roundtable is running a mesh competition (the nearest thing the mesh world has to a world cup) based on London's Tower bridge, so see if you think Caedium Professional has what it takes to be a contender. Then there's the actual World Cup and, if aerodynamics is your thing, all that matters is the ball.
It's time you heard about progress on the next Caedium release, right? This can only mean one thing - sneak peek season is upon us with a preview of the new passive species transport capability coming to a Caedium near you soon. Let's not forget that Caedium also has a wide range of existing capabilities, so why not take a moment to see how to make a splash using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)?

3D visualization explained, diagnosing turbulence model issues, and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) task automation using Caedium's Python scripting - a technical reading list for you this month. Too much? Then lighten the load with some April Fools' Day posts on the aerodynamics of stationary bicycles.

This month you can find out how Caedium uses co-processing to avoid Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) results data overload and assists in steering your simulation. Also, be sure to see our CFD flow volume creation tips and read an opinion on browser-based CAD/CAE applications.
A new Caedium release is ready and waiting with a couple of new features and bug fixes. Are you confused by how your solid model relates to a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) flow volume, or were you wondering how the fluid dynamics of a sphere affects ball sports, then this is the newsletter for you.

It's 2014 and have we got a newsletter for you! First let's wrap up 2013 with a festive story about how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can help explain Santa's mission impossible. Next it's time for serious work with 12 CFD tips and a look at laminar and turbulent flow using Caedium Professional. For the finale, read about energy generation from kites of the underwater variety.

'Tis the season to be whimsy, tra la la la la, la la la la' ... and so off to a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) whimsy holiday season we go with a Caedium simulation of an elephant collapsing into a puddle. Also joining us are a couple of whimsy-themed blog posts. Thanks for your support during 2013. We are looking forward to serving your CFD needs in 2014 and beyond.
This month we shine a light on wings with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) studies of racecar wing mounts and maple seeds, which are also known in aerodynamic circles as mono-wing seed delivery systems.
