October 2014: The Founding Fathers of CFD

The theory on which Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) depends was laid way back in the 19th Century, before the dawn of practical computers. Take a moment to marvel at some of the science pioneers armed only with pens and paper who enabled CFD to become an essential engineering tool used today by a wide swath of industries.

September 2014: Geometry Techniques for CFD

The overwhelming majority of issues that prevent a smooth Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) process are related to geometry. If geometry issues cause you headaches, then read on for a series of articles that describe techniques to help you navigate around common problems. Once you are done, unwind with a look at how nature uses similar visualizations to those found in CFD.

July 2014: Reduce Your CFD Simulation Size by 50% or More

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.

June 2014: World Cup Edition

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.

May 2014: Sneak Peek at Passive Species

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)?
