June 2012

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.

Caedium v4 Sneak Peek: Rotating Vertical Axis Wind Turbine CFD Simulation

You will be able to simulate rotating wind turbines and mixers with the next release of the Caedium CFD software system. Caedium will support Moving Reference Frames (MRF), which is an efficient way to simulate rotating machinery. Read more >>

Caedium v4 Sneak Peek: Japanese Translation

You will be able to perform Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations in a selection of languages, including Japanese, with the next release of the Caedium CFD software system. Read more >>

Caedium CFD Software Helps High School Team To 2nd Fastest Time at the German F1 in Schools Finals

You may recall back in March that I covered how the high school team Fastcination won the South-East German F1 in Schools competition with help from Caedium. That regional win qualified Fastcination to compete for the 2012 German F1 in Schools title and now the results from that competition are in. Fastcination recorded the second fastest track time thanks to their low-drag CO2 dragster, aided by the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations performed by Caedium Professional. Read more >>

London 2012 Olympics: Fluid Technology for Cycling

Cycling is one of the fastest sports in the Olympics. With that speed comes an increased importance on aerodynamics. In cycling the aerodynamic design is focused on minimizing drag. However, as with swimming, there are carefully crafted rules that ensure there is only a narrow scope for aerodynamic optimization to gain a competitive advantage. Read more >>

Vortex Shedding Behind a Cylinder

Given how simple the geometry defining a cylinder is, you'd intuitively think that the air flow around it would also be simple. And as with many things fluid you'd be wrong. Read more >>

London 2012 Olympics: Fluid Technology for Track and Field (Athletics)

A big draw of any Olympics is the track and field (athletics) events and no less so in London. What effect is the application of fluid technology to these events likely to have? If past Olympics are anything to go by - not much! Read more >>
