📚 “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest." – Benjamin Franklin
Hey friends & nerds! 👋
Welcome to the Sunday Science Newsletter where we explore science, systems & tools that help us become smarter scientists.
💡 Machine Learning Applied to CFD by Andre Weiner
This repository contains examples of how to use machine learning (ML) algorithms in the field of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). ML algorithms may be applied in different steps during a CFD-based study:
pre-processing, e.g., for geometry or mesh generation
run-time, e.g., as a dynamic boundary condition or as a subgrid-scale model
post-processing, e.g., to create substitute models or to analyze results

🎙️Podcast – The Lattice Boltzmann Method
Based on his fascination for GPU and 3D graphics, Eugen initiated the development of a prototypical GPU-accelerated program for simulating flows as early as 2007 during his studies in aerospace at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
Following his studies, he brought the software prototype into an existing spin-off company, which he had previously helped to build through his expertise in HPC and GPU. With the experience he gained, he started his own business in 2013 to develop pacefish® to market maturity as a highly efficient tool for simulating fluid flows. In 2016, he then founded Numeric Systems GmbH.
🏎️ The Role of the Wind Tunnel in Formula One
The wind tunnel is an essential tool for any F1 team, and with track testing limited to just a handful of days per year, every strand of data is critical.
Discover how the team collects that data using a sophisticated photo-imaging technique, and how NetApp play a vital role.

Diabatix leverages the power of state-of-the-art algorithms, high-performance computing and accurate physical modelling to design the cooling that fits your requirements. For any budget, ColdStream can help you find the best cooling for your product without the need for expert knowledge.
💻 App of the Week – SigmaOS (MacOS)
I’ve fell in love with SigmaOS over the last 5-6 weeks I’ve been using it. Organised workspaces & work. One window. Many workspaces. Owning all my tabs.

📚 Book of the Week
An Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics
This book is a guide to numerical methods for solving fluid dynamics problems. The most widely used discretization and solution methods, which are also found in most commercial CFD-programs, are described in detail. Some advanced topics, like moving grids, simulation of turbulence, computation of free-surface flows, multigrid methods and parallel computing, are also covered. Since CFD is a very broad field, we provide fundamental methods and ideas, with some illustrative examples, upon which more advanced techniques are built.
