Nature TechBlog: My digital toolbox

Jeffrey Perkel, Technology Editor for Nature, interviewed Prof. Lorena A. Barba about her research group's reproducibility practices and the digital tools that enable them. She talked about the group's computational research interests, their avant-garde use of digital tools and repositories to create "repro-packs," and how these allow her to share research figures freely even when part...

Also published on the Medium publication "Hacker Noon."  After my short piece, “A hard road to reproducibility,” appeared in Science, I received several emails and Twitter mentions asking for more specific tips—both about tools and documents we use in the group to train the team about reproducibility. In answer to popular demand, then, I have... Continue »

Reproducible and replicable CFD: it's harder than you think

Choosing an incorrect boundary condition with IBAMR resulted in spurious blockage of vortices at the outlet. Thanks to the support received in the code users' forum, this and other problems were resolved and we succeeded in replicating previous findings.
