The big news in Symscape-land is the new ribbon GUI that will be making its debut in the next release of the Caedium CFD software system - check out the picture below. As a follow up to last month's announcement of the new polyhedral mesh conversion option coming soon to Caedium, find out how polyhedral elements perform relative to tetrahedral and hexahedral elements. Then for easy reading you have my latest blog post.
Clearly it's time we revealed what you can look forward to in the next release of the Caedium CFD software system. Grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and read all about the new polyhedral (dual) mesh feature in Caedium v5 that will save you time and increase the accuracy of your results. Still have a free moment? Then enjoy my latest blog posts.
I hope you've had a great start to 2013. What can you look forward to in 2013 from Symscape? Just the usual - exciting new CFD productivity enhancements in Caedium, great support services, expanded documentation, and an eclectic selection of fluid-themed blog posts.

It's November and therefore it's Supercomputing Conference time. Caedium Professional is playing a starring role at SC12 as part of Asetek's extreme live demonstration of their state-of-the-art water cooled HPC cluster. If you are interested you can find more details below. Also this month we've seen a series of great results from F1 in Schools teams using Caedium, which included the Cold Fusion team being crowned the F1 in Schools World Champions. In addition to these great stories we also have an eclectic mix of blog posts.

Since the release of Caedium v4, we've received a number of requests on how to perform CFD simulations for the air flow over tensile structures. If you are a tensile structures engineer then be sure to check out the two new Caedium tutorials we recently posted just for you. While you are here also catch up with a new electronics cooling CFD example and our recent blog posts.
I hope you've had a chance to try the new Caedium v4 release we announced last month. To help you get started we added four tutorials covering some of the new capabilities. Keep reading for more details on the new tutorials and for the teasers to our recent blog posts.

We couldn't wait any longer to tell you that Caedium v4.0 is finished and awaits your CFD simulations. The highlight of this release is the ability to simulate free surface flows using a Volume of Fluid (VOF) multiphase solver. Also, just in case you missed the steady stream of sneak peeks about the other new features in this release, you'll find the full collection below.

Feeling a little deja vu here - Caedium v4 still needs a little more polish before it's ready for release, but it's really, really close - really! To tide you over, included in this month's news is another Caedium v4 sneak peek and a selection of recent blog posts.

Are you ready for Caedium v4? It's almost ready for you, just a little more testing and documentation and it will be all set. In the meantime see what enhancements you can look forward to with sneak peeks at the Caedium support for rotating machinery CFD simulations, such as vertical axis wind turbines, and new Caedium language translations, including Japanese. Then kick back and relax with some general interest blog posts on fluid mechanics.
