📚 Books for the Finite Element Method (FEM)
A new post on my blog of the best FEA books to learn more about the Finite Element Method (FEM), FEM for Fluid Mechanics & Nonlinear Mechanics.
🚀 Battery Pack | Tech Talks | Lucid Motors
Peter Rawlinson hosts Lucid Tech Talks — an all-new series that uncovers some secrets behind Lucid’s proprietary EV tech. In this first episode, Peter opens up the battery module and shares keys to achieving revolutionary range.
🧠 ML-Driven Fluid Simulation
Zibra Liquids — the first-ever ML-driven fluid simulation plugin available for commercial use. This plugin works in real-time and allows for water to be the basis of the new gameplay!
Zibra Liquids is embedded in the game engine. So developers no longer need to use expensive and time-consuming third-party software. Users get the desired solution right out of the box. Using AI-powered technology, the object-liquid interaction occurs in a few clicks.
💻 Engineering Tool of the Week – CALCULIX
CalculiX is a package designed to solve field problems. The method used is the finite element method.
With CalculiX Finite Element Models can be built, calculated and post-processed. The pre- and post-processor is an interactive 3D-tool using the openGL API. The solver is able to do linear and non-linear calculations. Static, dynamic and thermal solutions are available.
📚 Book of the Week
A Voyage Through Turbulence
Turbulence is widely recognized as one of the outstanding problems of the physical sciences, but it still remains only partially understood despite having attracted the sustained efforts of many leading scientists for well over a century. In A Voyage Through Turbulence we are transported through a crucial period of the history of the subject via biographies of twelve of its great personalities, starting with Osborne Reynolds and his pioneering work of the 1880s.
This book will provide absorbing reading for every scientist, mathematician and engineer interested in the history and culture of turbulence, as background to the intense challenges that this universal phenomenon still presents.
