Computational Fluid Dynamics FAQs – Part 2

As a follow up to last week’s video blog, my colleague Dr. Farzin Shakib continues the discussion around computational fluid dynamics, today addressing the conservation of mass, energy and momentum in finite element-based CFD solvers.

Engineering Amazing

The recent TV spots by Lexus (below) stirred up some questions from friends who know basically what we do here at Altair but not the specifics.

The Design Future

This blog debates how simulation technology is becoming a dominant technology within the product development process. This initial entry presents a historical personal perspective of this evolution. (Apologies for the entry length, but please stick with it!) It seems a … Read More

Two Directions for Numerical Simulation

Where does numerical simulation go? Even during the past decades, the details of the simulation models were following increasing computer speed. The faster the computers became, the bigger the models became. It is great that we can cover more and … Read More
