November 2015: FYI DIY CFD

This month is the month for you to give Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) a go. There has never been a better time to benefit from CFD, so find out why the time is now for your own DIY CFD projects. Then, for a taste of something technical, see why CFDers prefer analytic geometry over faceted geometry.

If fluid flow is a primary driver for your design project then CFD is likely to be a cost effective way to help meet your goals. You could outsource your CFD to consultants, but in the long run it usually pays to do it yourself. Read more >>

CFD Prefers NURBS Over STL

Let me explain why, given the option, you should prefer analytic geometry (e.g., NURBS) over faceted geometry (e.g., STL) for CFD. Read more >>
