Continuous Inkjet Printing
Posted Monday May 22 at 11:11am
Continuous inkjet printing is an established technology that has been around for 150 years. Simply put, it is a method of droplet generation where once the print head is running there is a continuous stream of fluid.

A Flow Science blog post discusses the physics behind continuous inkjet printing, followed by the FLOW-3D simulation studies conducted by Ioannis H. Karampelas, CFD Engineer at Flow Science.

CFD Aids Human Heart Model
Posted Thursday May 18 at 4:0pm
Capvidia has used their FlowVision CFD software to model blood flow as part of the SIMULIA Living Heart Human Model.

The Living Heart Project is a research initiative to develop and validate highly accurate digital simulation models of the human heart, for use by researchers, educators, medical device developers, regulatory agencies, and practicing cardiologists. One of the initiative’s first, and most valuable, products is the SIMULIA Living Heart Human Model, a dynamic, anatomically detailed, finite-element (FE) model, representing the electrical and physical behavior of a four-chamber heart, with a simplified fluid (blood) model capable of representing dynamic pressure/volume changes in intra- and extra-cardiac circulation.

Performance Optimization of a Centrifugal Fan
Posted Tuesday May 2 at 2:5pm
You hear about it everywhere: design optimization. The world requires more efficient and reduced emissions products, as with the government regulations directives mandating their adherence to energy standards such as EU’s Ecodesign directive.

The competitive pressure across the industry means that it is no longer sufficient to design and manufacture fans that simply work.

A Scientist and a Supercomputer Re-Create a Tornado
Posted Wednesday April 12 at 4:21pm
With tornado season fast approaching or already underway in vulnerable states throughout the U.S., new supercomputer simulations are giving meteorologists unprecedented insight into the structure of monstrous thunderstorms and tornadoes. One such recent simulation recreates a tornado-producing supercell thunderstorm that left a path of destruction over the central Great Plains in 2011.

The person behind that simulation is Leigh Orf, a scientist with the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
