News Design News has posted a review of CFdesign, the up-front CFD software from Blue Ridge Numerics.
"The design engineer doesn't want to know about meshing," says Len Whitehead, Blue Ridge's director of operations. Or to take another important example, CFdesign has automatic convergence algorithms that decide when the analysis has run its course. "The software tells you when the analysis is finished," he says.

Taking the Drag Out of the Tour de France
Posted Tue August 16, 2005 @02:01PM

News Desktop Engineering has posted an article on the use of CFD to predict the aerodynamics of Tour de France Team Time Trail competition.
By performing CFD simulations of a nine-man TTT and a single cyclist ITT, it is possible to evaluate the influence of drafting. Although individual cyclists have been subjected to wind-tunnel testing, the sheer size of a nine-cyclist paceline makes physical testing impractical. In the CFD world, entire TTT calculations were, until recently, prohibitively expensive, requiring a great number of computational cells to sufficiently resolve the flow past the line of cyclists.
