News Flows of gases and liquids have always had an aesthetic appeal to both the scientific community and to the general public at large; be it a Leonardo da Vinci water sketch, a turbulent Van Gogh sky in Southern France, or a Hiroshige Ando lithograph of a large wave about to engulf an open boat.

The advent of Computational Fluid Dynamics over the last 20 years has amplified this perception of fluid flow phenomena in the mind of the viewer with a range of very colorful visual representations of flows in everyday objects and situations.

Application By David Curtis,
Sports Engineering Research Group (SERG), Sheffield University, Sheffield, UK
Reprinted from Fluent News

The United Kindom is not renowned for its climate being conducive to winter sports. However, with the Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy in February 2006, a new breed of athlete has come along. Kristan Bromley, the top-ranked skeleton bobsled competitor in the UK, and current European Champion, is a leading British medal prospect. He was also the first British male to win a winter sports world cup series when he dominated the 2003/2004 season. Bromley is perhaps unique in the sport because he has a Ph.D. in ice sports technology, and saw the value of CFD in his previous job with the defense company BAE.
