Social - Episode 11 Talking CFD

    • Business

It’s the last episode of 2019 & we’re introducing a new section of the show called “grumpy old CFDistas get a bit bah humbug about stuff” which may not become a regular feature.

Some of the things on our radar this episode include…

• Cybertruck simulations on LinkedIn
• In awe of Patrick’s CFD skills & PreonLab’s renderings
• the “importance” of aerodynamics for battery electric vehicles (& the importance of not getting too “rant-y” while podcasting)
• AWS clusters vs. SPH & the fight for control of Simon’s to-do list
• a few other shiny nuggets from the AWS conference r.e. CFD

Links to some things we mentioned

• NASA Turbulence Modelling Resource - https://turbmodels.larc.nasa.gov/
• Discussion of Formula1® doing CFD on AWS with a few details - https://www.zdnet.com/article/formula-1-turns-to-aws-to-develop-next-gen-race-car/
• Slightly less enlightening but more entertaining talk from Rob Smedley about the above - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBX7lPk5qmA
• Peter DeSantis talking about HPC on AWS (it’s l-o-n-g & also has the Rob Smedley bit in it) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPUWATKe15E
• New ARM instances coming to AWS with (apparently) around 40% price-performance advantage over their other instances (faster AND cheaper) - https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/coming-soon-graviton2-powered-general-purpose-compute-optimized-memory-optimized-ec2-instances/
As always, connect with us both on LinkedIn & mention the podcast 👍
