💻 CFD Lectures for Incompressible Flow
The present lecture notes are written to emphasize the mathematics of the Navier–Stokes (N.–S.) equations of incompressible flow and the algorithms that have been developed over the past 30 years for solving them.
🧠 Learning to Play Minecraft with Video PreTraining (VPT) – OpenAI
OpenAI trained a neural network on a massive unlabeled video dataset of human Minecraft play, while using only a small amount of labeled contractor data.
💻 MIT - FEM Series with Klaus-Jürgen Bathe
💻 Engineering Tool of the Week – COOLFluiD
The COOLFluiD (Computational Object-Oriented Libraries for Fluid Dynamics) platform, whose development started in 2002 at the Von Karman Institute.
COOLFluiD is a framework for building numerical solvers for multi-physics applications.
📚 Book of the Week
An Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics: The Finite Volume Method
This established, leading textbook, is suitable for courses in CFD. The new edition covers new techniques and methods, as well as considerable expansion of the advanced topics and applications (from one to four chapters).
This book presents the fundamentals of computational fluid mechanics for the novice user. It provides a thorough yet user-friendly introduction to the governing equations and boundary conditions of viscous fluid flows, turbulence and its modelling, and the finite volume method of solving flow problems on computers.
