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. Read more >>

10 Design Rules For Fluid Dynamics

There are basic design rules for fluid dynamics, which allow you to jumpstart your design without having to resort to fundamental experiments or analysis. What are these rules? Read more >>

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. Read more >>
