When my son graduated from University a few years ago with his shiny new degree in Accounting, he was eager to land his first “real job.” One that didn’t involve wearing a paper hat or asking if you’d like fries with that. After a several interviews it became clear that he was lacking a key skill that most hiring managers were looking for: exposure and/or experience with the commercial software the company was using for their accounting process. It was shocking to learn that he had never been exposed to any of the commercial tools that are heavily used in the industry for which he was preparing to enter. Although he graduated with a strong understanding of accounting principles, future employers expected that knowledge to be coupled with hands-on experience with their standard tools.

This seminar will feature presentations from leading companies in the marine and offshore industry, as well as experts from CD-adapco. A representative from Houston Offshore Engineering will also be there, discussing VIM analysis of Deep Draft Column Stabilized Floaters. If you’re interested in discovering more about what’s involved in performing such analyses, the seminar will feature both live demonstrations of STAR-CCM+, and an opportunity to try it yourself, with a hands-on session.
Ah, summer holidays, the beach, the sun, brain-matter replaced from thoughts of velocities, pressures and optimizations with pina coladas… Except that I went camping close to a river. Of course, you know what happens when a CFD engineer watches a river for too long? He sees streamlines, algae flowing around bridge pillars in neat flow paths, and immediately spots a leaf following the path of least resistance… and wonders what the residence time of that leaf is. So this all got me thinking about work again. Before I left for my holidays, I was trying to showcase the recirculation zones in our latest invention. Nothing would portray them as badly as I felt they were. I tried vectors, I tried streamlines, I tried scalars and overlaying various field functions on various derived parts. Nothing would do it. I'm not a Colorful Fancy Designer, I'm Dr Mesh and my speciality is meshing, so I really need to learn about these post-processing things. I read with eagerness the posts from Matthew Godo .
