“Life must be understood backward. But it must be lived forward ” – Søren Kierkegaard
🏫 Course - One Free Month of Skillshare to explore your creativity with classes in illustration, photography, design, productivity and more!
💦 Lattice-Boltzmann Method (LBM) - Kármán Vortex Street
In less than 50 lines of Python code, you can create a Kármán vortex street simulation- this was the result! The simulation runs with 100,000 iterations and a Reynolds number of 500. Would you like to see a code explanation video?
🧠 What are the differences between neural networks and the brain?

and much more…
📚 Book of the Week
A First Course in Finite Elements
The text material evolved from over 50 years of combined teaching experience it deals with a formulation and application of the finite element method. A meaningful course can be constructed from a subset of the chapters in this book for a quarter course; instructions for such use are given in the preface. The course material is organized in three chronological units of one month each: 1) the finite element formulation for one-dimensional problems, 2) the finite element formulation for scalar field problems in two dimensions and 3) finite element programming and application to scalar field problems; and finite element formulation for vector field problems in two dimensions and beams. In conjunction with the book there will be the access and use of ABAQUS software and MATLAB exercises.
