May 2019: New Caedium Release and Tutorials

It is finally time to announce the new release of Caedium v6.0, headlined with the addition of Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) and Passive Species Transport. I know it has been a while, but some things take time and are the worth the wait - I hope this release is one of those things. In support of the new features are two new tutorials to get you started with CHT.

July 2017: Digital Paleontology with CFD

This month's newsletter has an unusual digital paleontology focus. Check out how Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) provides researchers with insights into how long-extinct creatures (everybody loves a dinosaur story or two, right?) might have interacted with their environments.

June 2017: Runners, Insects, and a Wind Turbine

Get your aerodynamics on with this month's newsletter, where aerodynamic specialists teach runners how to draft and insect wings inspire new wind turbine blades.

May 2017: Active Aerodynamics

We have an active newsletter for you this month. First up is the aerodynamics of cycling tucks, which is a white knuckle activity ride. Then there's the active aerodynamics of the latest Lamborghini to pump your adrenaline to the max.

April 2017: Fluidics and Stonehenge Vortex

It's April and therefore it's time to confess that there isn't a solstice day vortex generated at Stonehenge, unless you are in the April Fools' Day distortion field. However, there are fluidic components that mimic digital logic gates.

March 2017: CFD and Aerodynamics

The two themes for this month's newsletter are Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and aerodynamics. First check out our revamped CFD description now with a what, why, and how treatment. Next see how aerodynamics can help you go dangerously fast downhill. Then finally, discover the aero effects of fenders (mud guards) on your bicycle wheels.

February 2017: Unusual Aerodynamics

This month's newsletter deals with unusual aerodynamic applications. Downforce for motorcycles and drag reduction using plasma control on big rigs are two examples of what at first glance sounds unusual, but make perfect sense once you delve into the motivation behind them, so read on.

January 2017: The CFD Simulations, Lessons, and Fluid Dynamics of 2016

Throughout 2016 we brought you a varied selection of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations, lessons in CFD, and general fluid dynamics topics. If you missed any of these gems then now is the time to get up to date and clear the decks for another round of tasty treats in 2017.

December 2016: Holiday Season For CFD

Holiday season is with us once again. Just in case you were wondering what to get the CFDer who has everything, then check out our Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) themed gifts. I hope this holiday season sees you with some spare time. If so consider reading up on how intuition and fluid dynamics are often difficult partners. Also, find out why there are so many different turbulence models and which ones might be worth considering for your application. Whatever you choose to do, we wish you all the best for the holidays and the New Year.

November 2016: Fluid News Roundup

Make way for a general fluid news roundup this month with Formula 1, hydraulic capsule pipelines, and fish farming sea cages. This is probably the first time those three topics have appeared together, so savor the moment as it is unlikely to occur again.
