CFD Python: 12 steps to Navier-Stokes

We announce the public release of online educational materials for self-learners of CFD using IPython Notebooks: the CFD Python Class! Update! (Jan.2014) CFD Python has a new home on GitHub Some background This post describes the first practical module of Prof. Barba's Computational Fluid Dynamics class, as taught between 2010 and 2013 at Boston University.

Flying snake wake visualizations with cuIBM

These animations show the vortex wake behind a snake cross-section (two-dimensional profile), obtained with full Navier-Stokes simulation. The solver is an immersed boundary method that uses GPU hardware, cuIBM (open-source under the MIT license). The cases shown vary in Reynolds number (Re=1000, 2000) and angle... Continue »

Validation of the cuIBM code

We have developed a Navier-Stokes solver, called cuIBM, to simulate incompressible flows using immersed boundary methods.  This document provides background on the numerical methods implemented in the cuIBM code framework and evidence of the validation exercise carried out by the authors. The code provides... Continue »
