Holiday season is with us once again. Just in case you were wondering what to get the CFDer who has everything, then check out our Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) themed gifts. I hope this holiday season sees you with some spare time. If so consider reading up on how intuition and fluid dynamics are often difficult partners. Also, find out why there are so many different turbulence models and which ones might be worth considering for your application. Whatever you choose to do, we wish you all the best for the holidays and the New Year.
Make way for a general fluid news roundup this month with Formula 1, hydraulic capsule pipelines, and fish farming sea cages. This is probably the first time those three topics have appeared together, so savor the moment as it is unlikely to occur again.

More amazing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for you this month with a step beyond 2D to 3D maze solving. Also brush up on using symmetry to save yourself time and your computer memory for your next CFD study.
Let us start this month's news with something amazing, did you know that Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can solve mazes? Read all about it in the Amazing CFD article. Also for your reading pleasure we have advice on how to squeeze that final 20% performance out of your design and why you should never settle for facets as the basis for your geometry.
I'll save you some time and say right here, upfront, that there is no link between good Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) gone bad and aerodynamics at the Tour de France (TdF). Except they are featured articles for your reading pleasure in this month's newsletter.
Have you ever stopped to think how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) makes CFD possible? Or have you wondered how easy it is to assess wacky designs with CFD? If you answer in the affirmative to either of these questions then this newsletter will be a direct hit.
This month we have a couple of diverse Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) topics for your reading list. Did you know that CFD skills are a hot ticket for many startups? Read more about how CFD is a modern day pick and shovel skill. Also, are you looking for tips on CFD simulation creation? Find out how model preparation for 3D printing can aid your CFD.

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?
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.
