You might think of T-Rex surface meshes as just symmetry boundaries for a T-Rex volume mesh, but they also... (more)

CFD Study of Semi-Covered Wheels

CFD Study of Semi-Covered Wheels

Many sports cars have wheel covers that can generate additional lift over that of uncovered wheels. This computational fluid dynamics (CFD) study investigated the aerodynamic differences between semi-covered and isolated wheels. It was carried out as... (more)

Modeling a Shipping Container in a Tsunami

Modeling Shipping Container Velocity during Tsunami Conditions

The risk that tsunamis pose to coastal structures is not just from the wave impact, but also from the impact of debris that is carried by the fluid flow. Shipping containers are ubiquitous in coastal locations and represent a realistic debris object. For want of a better approximation, it is often assumed... (more)
