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.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is widely applicable across many industries and applications. For example, check out this month's series of blog posts that cover the aerodynamics of an airliner, the wind erosion of the Great Sphinx at Giza, and the multiphase simulation of a combined pitot tube and manometer - each is highlighted by a Caedium Professional CFD simulation.

This month I have a special feature newsletter for you that gathers together all the recent wind tunnel Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) blog posts, including a new two part series which compares a virtual wind tunnel with free air for an open wheel racecar. The Caedium Professional simulations show that even though the Reynolds number is different between the wind tunnel and a full size simulation, the results can still be useful in guiding the aerodynamic design of a racecar.
