CFD Benefits From 3D Printing

It turns out that preparing geometry models for 3D printing has a lot of similarities with preparing geometry for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Both require watertight non-manifold geometry, otherwise your model will plunge your 3D printer or your CFD software into chaos.

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.

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.
