Flow Science's latest developer: Anup Gokarn
Flow Science has recently added another new member to its team: Anup Gokarn. Anup started at the beginning of March, and he will work with Dr. Michael Barkhudarov (VP of Research and Development) on code development. His main focus is on the parallel MPI version of FLOW-3D. Anup obtained his Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering, December 2000, at the University of Mumbai, India; his MS., Mechanical Engineering, August 2002, at Iowa State University, Ames, IA. and just recently completed his Ph.D., Mechanical Engineering, May 2007, also at Iowa State University, Ames, IA. Welcome aboard, Anup!

Aspiring CFD Engineers
School's out for the day at Flow Science
This February, a group of high school students from the Monte de Sol Charter School in Santa Fe, NM, and their mentor, Stephen Guerin, visited the Flow Science office to hear a talk by Dr. C.W. (Tony) Hirt about how fluid flow is modeled by starting with the most basic concepts in order to build a software that simulates complex fluid flows. The students have been working on their own simulation projects, including writing a program to model interaction within a casino. We think an engineering degree is a good gamble!
