► Free Water & Environmental FLOW-3D Workshops
  28 Jul, 2015 

Two free hands-on workshops geared towards prospective users of FLOW-3D will be held in conjunction with the FLOW-3D Americas Users Conferences on September 21 in Denver, CO and September 24 in Montreal, QC. The workshops will focus on modeling water and environmental flows with FLOW-3D. There is no cost to participate in these free workshops put on by Flow Science. Participants will be given a free 30-day license after the workshop. Space is limited, so we encourage you to sign up early at

► 60th NIA CFD Seminar Webcast: M4D, an Open Source Research CFD Code for the Calculation of Classical and Turbulent/Tr
  28 Jul, 2015 

60th NIA CFD Seminar

Topic: M4D, an Open Source Research CFD Code for the Calculation of Classical and Turbulent/Transitional Flows

Date: Tuesday, August 4, 2015

Time: 11:00am-noon (EST)

Room: NIA, Rm137

Speaker: Joan G. Moore

Speaker Bio: It is fifty years since Joan and John Moore met in M.I.T.’s Gas Turbine Laboratory. John had come with a B.Sc. (Eng.) in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College, London to obtain an S.M. and then an Sc.D from M.I.T. Joan with a B.S. in Applied Mathematics from M.I.T., had the job of writing computer codes and helping Graduate students with theirs. Thus began a life-long CFD and turbulence modeling collaboration. John is currently a Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech. Their first ‘retirement’ project, their book “Functional Reynolds Stress Modeling” was published in 2006. And now Joan has written her 4th CFD code, M4D, but her first one unfettered by external sponsorship.

Abstract: M4D features unsteady convection adapted control volumes and the MARV/MARVS Reynolds stress models. Convection adapted control volumes are a paradigm shift in CFD. Used with tri-linear discretization of convected properties in space over a fixed grid (formally 3-d 2nd-order accurate), they provide a balance between accuracy and stability not found in fixed volume methods. The MARV/MARVS Reynolds stress models are advanced turbulence models which calculate transition naturally based on an understanding of homogeneous shear flow at high dimensionless strain rates. The presentation will concentrate on the convection adapted control volumes – the method, the combination of stability and accuracy, with the examples of an inviscid Kelvin-Helmholtz shear layer instability and near-DNS of flow in a square channel. The steady flow Reynolds stress model examples of transitional flow and heat transfer in a turbine cascade (Butler et al.) and of a backward facing step (Kasagi) also use the convection adapted control volumes.

► How Simulation is Impacting Respiratory Systems within Life Sciences
  24 Jul, 2015 

United States, September 15, 2015

In this webinar we will discuss and demonstrate how leading simulation software can be used to prototype device designs, eliminating the need for time-consuming clinical tests. Topics will include the modeling of the device, in silico modeling of nasal passages and respiratory tracts, diagnostics and even virtual surgeries to aid the decision-making process.

► Flipping the Classroom: Strategies for Success in Engineering
  24 Jul, 2015 

Free Webinar, September 10, 2015

In this online event, Professor Ron Averill discusses examples of the flipped model used at Michigan State University and will explore different teaching approaches. The advantages of lifelong learning and relevant learning tools that can prepare engineers for the transition to industry will be discussed. Engineering professors, students and researchers can learn how and why the use of this unique learning approach by a wide range of industries continues to grow.
