Podcast: Next-Generation CFD

Nextflow Software CEO Vincent Perrier discusses the future of computational fluid dynamics.

Nextflow Software CEO Vincent Perrier discusses the future of computational fluid dynamics.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation is typically achieved using the industry-proven body-fitted Finite Volume (FV) method. Particle-based methods, and especially Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), have now reached industrial maturity, and SPH can complement established CFD solutions where FV shows its limitations, either in its capability to simulate correctly the fluid flows, or in terms of lengthy computation time.

We recently spoke to Nextflow Software CEO Vincent Perrier to discuss next-generation CFD as part of our Technology Leader Profile series.
