Computational Fluid Dynamics: An Overview of Popular Software Packages


Computational Fluid Dynamics, or CFD, is the science of using numerical methods and computers to solve a set of partial differential equations to quantitatively predict fluid flow or heat transfer in an application. It is used in a variety of fields, from aero/hydrodynamics to energy, combustion, environmental flows, biomedical engineering and many more. Using CFD simulations significantly reduces the number of design prototypes required, saving considerable time and money in the design process - accounting for its rising importance in R&D. There are numerous CFD software packages, both commercial and open-source (free), the suitability of each based on the user’s knowledge, budget, and intended application. This presentation will provide an overview of some of the most popular CFD packages, their capabilities, and pros and cons, to help you choose the one that will work best for your company.

Using Git Tools to Manage File Changes and Collaborate: Version Control


This two-part series introduces participants to Git tools. The first session on December 1st focuses on version control. The second workshop on December 8th will explore using Git for collaborative development. Version control is the practice of managing and sharing changes to documents, programming code, websites or any other files to keep track of what’s been changed, by whom, when and why. All previous versions of files are saved and you can even revert to a previous version. Git is a version control software. Git-portal sites, like GitHub or GitLab, offer many useful features to facilitate collaborative development. This beginner level session introduces you to Git. We will show you how to create a repository, record changes to files, explore and restore from the recorded history and how to resolve conflicts (when one member overwrites another’s changes).
