NewsForge: Orbital Sciences senior engineer Heather Holst and her colleagues are smart. That's to be expected, since they work for a company that designs and tests rockets. This highly intelligent group of people created makeshift clusters in order to perform a demanding simulation technique called Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). There was only one problem....
looks at fluid flow, which happens continuously all around us as we breathe, drink, move, and work; and it happens as machines and systems function as they were created to do. If a machine's design is faulty, fluid flow can negatively affect its performance.
