It’s Magic

Posted by Nazita Saye

Nazita Saye Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Arthur C. Clark I’ve often called mechanical engineers magicians because whenever I listen to them speak about what they do the only thing that comes to mind is magic. Much like the first time I looked at Engineering Fluid Dynamics (EFD). EFD is a different breed of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software. EFD shares the same … Read More
