🌀 The Helmholtz-Hodge Decomposition
The Helmholtz-Hodge decomposition split vectors fields in two orthogonal subspaces: incompressible and irrotational. In 2-D, corresponds to the sum of a gradient field and a rotated gradient field.
🤓 The Feynman Lectures on Physics
Now, anyone with internet access and a web browser can enjoy reading a high quality up-to-date copy of Feynman's legendary lectures. This edition has been designed for ease of reading on devices of any size or shape; text, figures and equations can all be zoomed without degradation.

🚀 Engineering Tool of the Week – OpenLB – Open Source Lattice Boltzmann Code
The OpenLB project provides a C++ package for the implementation of lattice Boltzmann methods that is general enough to address a vast range of transport problems, e.g. in computational fluid dynamics. The source code is publicly available and constructed in a well readable, modular way. This enables for a fast implementation of both simple academic test problems and advanced engineering applications. It is also easily extensible to include new physical content.
📚 Book of the Week
Understanding Aerodynamics: Arguing from the Real Physics
Based on the author's decades of industrial experience with Boeing, this book helps students and practicing engineers to gain a greater physical understanding of aerodynamics. Relying on clear physical arguments and examples, McLean provides a much-needed, fresh approach to this sometimes contentious subject without shying away from addressing "real" aerodynamic situations as opposed to the oversimplified ones frequently used for mathematical convenience.
Motivated by the belief that engineering practice is enhanced in the long run by a robust understanding of the basics as well as real cause-and-effect relationships that lie behind the theory, he provides intuitive physical interpretations and explanations, debunking commonly-held misconceptions and misinterpretations, and building upon the contrasts provided by wrong explanations to strengthen understanding of the right ones.
