Computational Fluid Dynamics: An Overview of Popular Software Packages


Computational Fluid Dynamics, or CFD, is the science of using numerical methods and computers to solve a set of partial differential equations to quantitatively predict fluid flow or heat transfer in an application. It is used in a variety of fields, from aero/hydrodynamics to energy, combustion, environmental flows, biomedical engineering and many more. Using CFD simulations significantly reduces the number of design prototypes required, saving considerable time and money in the design process - accounting for its rising importance in R&D. There are numerous CFD software packages, both commercial and open-source (free), the suitability of each based on the user’s knowledge, budget, and intended application. This presentation will provide an overview of some of the most popular CFD packages, their capabilities, and pros and cons, to help you choose the one that will work best for your company.

Closing Indigenous digital divides: Connectivity and digital equity projects funded by CIRA


We have never relied on the internet more – for work, for school, for keeping in touch with friends and family. But slow, choppy internet remains the norm for many across the country. Think of the last time you had a problem connecting to the internet — everything you did came to a grinding halt. Super frustrating, right? Now imagine this happening to you every single day, preventing you from doing the simplest things online. And, to add insult to injury, imagine your internet cost as much as $1000 a month. Unfortunately, this is a daily reality for Indigenous communities from coast to coast to coast. Recognizing this inequality, CIRA made changes to its Community Investment Program Grants initiative to place a special emphasis on funding internet-related projects that benefit Indigenous communities. As a member-based, mission-driven, not-for-profit, CIRA’s Grants are a crucial contribution toward our goal to promote a trusted internet for Canadians. Every .CA domain name registered or renewed contributes to this program. Join us to hear about the journey of three inspiring, Indigenous-led projects that will help bridge the digital divide – and learn what you can do to keep the momentum going.
