Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements Drs. Chris Sideroff and Durrell Rittenberg will present an hour-long webinar at 9 a.m. PDT on 14 April, demonstrating how to automate the process of optimizing blade design with best in class computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools.

The webinar will feature how to save time by automatically creating meshes using scripting, how to create grid topologies suitable for automation, how to create a framework for optimization space visualization, and how to easily set up the optimization process and speed your post-processing and reporting.
