Workstation for CFD

    I write this entry because I have received several questions about it. Many students, engineers and researchers have consulted me about the necessary computer (processor and graphics card) to develop simulations using ANSYS or OpenFOAM. [...]

    Comparison between mesh types

    One of the most important processes when performing a numerical simulation is meshing, currently there are several commercial and free software, in another post we will talk about it, however the most used (I think) is the … […]



    Some time ago they asked me: Ansys is better than OpenFOAM?
    Certainly, the question has no handle, I have always believed that all software is good (considering that they have the same simulation capabilities) and those who are wrong are us, the users. […]
