Where is Dr. Culbert Laney now?
I would like to contact Dr. Culbert Laney. He wrote the well known CFD book "Computational Gasdynamics" and he was responsible for a web-site entitled "Free and Low-Cost CFD Software" that used to be on

That website is now gone and Google could not give me any hints one where Dr. Culbert Laney is working now. Anyone know where he is?

Where is John Chien ?
Where is John Chien who used to be here 10 years ago when I was too ?

If you need help with a theoretical topic you could post it here and we could try to help...

Re: Where is John Chien ?
I do not know who John Chien is, but how is that related to Dr. Culbert Laney?

Re: Where is John Chien ?
Both John Chien and Culbert Laney are missing... that's the relation.

And I was asking, if Culbert is not here, do you have a specific question that someone else might be able to help you with ? or is it only addressed to Culbert ?

Re: Where is Dr. Culbert Laney?
Oh, no I just wanted to know where Dr. Culbert Laney is now since I want to contact him personally. I wasn't able to find any information about him online, which is a bit strange since he is a well known person who has written a nice book about CFD. I thought I'd ask on this forum to see if anyone else knows where he is now. He used to work in Aerospace Engineering in University of Colorado I think.

Re: Where is Dr. Culbert Laney?
I couldn't find him in their personell list. I'll contact them directly and ask.

This does not answer your question, but it does give you a chance to look through the web site as it was back then.

Re: Where is Dr. Culbert Laney now?
Actually this is a very interesting and supportive one. Does anyone where it has gone, how can we get in touch with it?

I apologize for this very tardy response. This thread was only recently brought to my attention. If it's still of any assistance, I've registered with CFD Online and you should now be able to contact me via e-mail through this site. For those curious about my post-academic career, I'm currently a Chief Scientist with TASC Inc. (a recent spinoff from Northrop Grumman) supporting the R&D Enterprise of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency in Lorton VA. In this role, I cover an extremely broad technology portfolio that includes some CFD and a large new program in basic research.

Ha! I am sitting next to him right now. I conveyed the message. This is from years ago, so you may have already found your answer. If not, let me know!
