High Order Methods for Industrial CFD
Posted Saturday July 30 at 7:33am
ERCOFTAC will host High Order Methods for Industrial CFD on 3-4 November 2016 at NUMECA, Brussels, Belgium.
As the industrial use of CFD continues to expand in daily engineering design and development, Industrial CFD still faces many challenges, especially its efficient use in a multidisciplinary design optimisation (MDO) environment. Therefore, to successfully manage the complex processes leading to a robust MDO methodology, one has to address the issue of reliability of the CFD predictions.

Steer the Right Course with FINE™/Marine
Posted Tuesday July 12 at 8:41am
NUMECA International is pleased to invite you to the seminar Steer the Right Course with FINE™/Marine organised at the Radisson BLU Hotel in Hamburg, Germany - only 150 meters away from the SMM 2016 exhibition centre - on September 8th 2016.
Fuel efficiency is one of the most dominant aspects during the design of modern vessels. To achieve the best possible trade-off between design parameters, accurate predictions for drag and seakeeping-performance are necessary, ideally in conjunction with powerful optimization tools.
In Memoriam Frank Harlow
Posted Thursday July 7 at 8:36am
Los Alamos Laboratory Fellow and physicist Frank Harlow died July 1, 2016 at age 88.
In a 50-year career at Los Alamos that began Sept. 1, 1953 as a staff member in the Theoretical Division, until his retirement on Sept. 4, 2003 as a Senior Fellow, Harlow was the inventor of numerous fluid dynamics techniques and came to be known to many associates as the "father of computational fluid dynamics." Harlow, in 1959, became group leader of the then Fluid Dynamics Group; the group was renamed Fluid Dynamics and Solid Mechanics in 2006. He was named a Laboratory Fellow in 1981.
