Where did CFD come from?

Posted Jul 31, 2009

I thought I’d briefly post a reference to David Tatchell’s blog. David was one of the pioneers of the CFD business back when MOS had just been invented, man set foot on the moon and computer memory was measured in kb. David’s writing a series of posts about the history of CFD over the last 40 years. I’ve worked with David my entire working life so the last 25 years should be familiar, but I’m looking forward to learning about how the Navier-Stokes equations were finally ‘cracked’. It promises to be ‘a must read’ for anyone interested or involved in CFD. David was there in the 60’s – lets hope he can remember it :)

About John Parry

John ParryI started my career in the consultancy group at CHAM Ltd., using PHOENICS for a variety of CFD applications. From the consultancy group I moved into support, helping customers debug models, and figuring out how to model new applications. That broadened into delivering training courses and creating training material. I was invited to join Flomerics when it started in 1989 to head up Customer Services, and I jumped at the chance to work for a startup. After a few years supporting customers using FloTHERM I moved across into research, developing thermofluid models of common electronic parts, like fans and IC packages, later managing the DELPHI and SEED projects. More recently I worked with Flomerics’ Finance Director on the acquisition of MicReD, helping to integrate MicReD’s business into Flomerics Group which was great fun. Since Flomerics acquired Nika, I’ve been responsible for promoting the FloEFD suite in education, and moved into marketing. I now work as part of the Mechanical Analysis Division’s Corporate Marketing group, responsible for ElectronicsCooling Magazine and the division’s Higher Education Program. Expertise: I’m a chemical engineer by training and did a PhD in reactor design before getting involved with CFD more than 25 years ago. Visit John Parry’s Blog
