Nazita Saye I’m rather proud of our products so whenever I speak with people I have a tendency to talk about features and functions… the juicy stuff. So it’s easy to forget that one of the main benefits of simulation is time compression. In the not too distant past, most companies used to do analysis only after the physical prototyping phase. The design team would create a cool design, the proposed design would … Read More

Contemplate This

Posted by Nazita Saye

Nazita Saye The smoke was visible even in Santa Monica. If you’ve been wondering why I’ve been so quiet for the past couple of weeks, the answer is simple: I’d gone to Southern California to visit my family. Because LA was experiencing a heatwave (the wildfires weren’t helping much either),  I spent a fair amount of my time at the beach. As I sat there with my toes dipped in the Pacific ocean, I had a fair amount … Read More

Nazita Saye From time to time I lurk around CFD related forums – just to see what people are talking about. A couple of weeks ago I found a posting on the subtleties of meshing and its relation to accuracy. The discussion rapidly became quite heated – there were some folks who believed that unless simulation gives you 100% accuracy then it is useless while others didn’t believe that accuracy is the only factor … Read More

Show Me the Money

Posted by Nazita Saye

Nazita Saye Cuba Gooding Jr’s conversation with Tom Cruise in Jerry McGuire became the mantra of a whole generation. Show _me_ the money. Your manager no doubt says the same thing to you all the time but in different guises: Can we improve product performance/functionality? Can we reduce the cost of producing this product? Can we cut the budget without sacrificing quality? And let’s not forget … Read More

Just the facts...

Posted by Nazita Saye

Nazita Saye A while ago I heard something that made me tilt my head to the side… similar to that iconic image of Nipper, the Jack Russell terrier, listening to his master’s voice on a phonograph (I was going to post the image but international copyright rules are rather complicated. If you really want to see the image, then please go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nipper). Anyway, someone jokingly referred to … Read More
