If you haven’t listened to Robin Knowles’ Talking CFD Podcast, you’re missing out on a unique perspective of world of CFD. That is, a seemingly unbiased discussion between Robin and his guests about their daily work and/or journey to where they are today. The candid discussions with subject matter experts (built environment, surfboard design, oil & gas) and industry leaders in CAE tools development (Meshing, CFD, Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics) are entertaining and insightful.
ENGYS Managing Partner and co-founder Eugene de Villiers was invited to chat with podcast host, Robin Knowles, in the summer of 2018. There, the conversation led to:
- Some unofficial history of OpenFOAM and where Eugene’s own career has intertwined with the history of the code (his days at Imperial College, FOAM vs OpenFOAM, and snappyHexMesh evolution into helyxHexMesh).
- Information about where ENGYS began and how our company grew to where we are today over the last 10 years.
- How industry is benefiting from Open-Source (i.e. reduced licensing costs, greater access to advanced developments, deeper design intelligence) through ENGYS’ simulation products and Add-Ons.
I highly recommend giving the Talking CFD podcast a listen. If you’re interested to learn more about how ENGYS can enable Open Source in your company, contact or see us at an upcoming event/webinar.
