Cloud computing now is one of the fastest growing sectors in the IT industry. How will this affect the CAE industry? Actually, cloud computing is not new for CAE industry, especially for CFD users. 15 or 20 years ago, when you accessed supercomputers in the computing centre from home or office through dial-up modems (do you ...

Navier-Stokes vs lattice Boltzmann: will it change the landscape of CFD?

navier-stokes-boltzmann_350-350

For most people,  CFD is about continuity and Navier-Stokes equations.  But this is not always true. One of the alternatives for CFD simulation is the lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE), where the fluid is treated as fictitious mesoscopic particles (not molecules). If you need something to make you sleepy, please read the short (and concise, and free) ...
