Welcome! - Introduce yourself :)


Thanks Jousef!


Hello my name is Eferebo Sylvanus, am actually new to Simscale platform .
I am trying to simulate flow behavior around a wing in ground effect marine fast craft model.
I have been going through lots of the aircraft simulation tutorial but will like to extend the idea to studying the model flow behavior when on sea and in flight mood under the influence of ground effect

I really need help here


Hi @seferebo and welcome to SimScale! :slight_smile:

Sounds like an interesting application! I would suggest that you put the CAD model along with a detailed description inside the Project Support section. Looking forward to see what we can achieve here!

All the best and happy stay here on SimScale!



I am also a newbie here. Please accept me guys all. Thanks!


Hi @bmike444!

Everybody is welcome to SimScale! :wink: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and for which projects you want to use SimScale?

Cheers and enjoy your stay here!



Hello everyone!
I’m Alex Fernandes, from Lisbon, Portugal.
I’m a CATIA V5 instructor in the UK and an absolute “nutty” for motorsport.
I still dream of being able to redirect my career towards my passion, instead of constantly training the guys that do so. Getting off the sidelines, so to speak.
I’ve always had a thing for aerodynamics and I want to join my expertise in CAD with aero and CFD.
I’ve been around the Simscale platform for a month now, and I’ve learned a lot.

I spend most of my free time with my wife and daughter or learning about motorsport related topics, I also love to 3d print things. I used to be an industrial process engineer and used my previous experience and knowledge to push my 3D printer to its very limit, now currently printing on a very high quality level.

I’m here to learn and help others, so if anyone has questions regarding CAD design, design methodology or CAD quality, I’m your man.



Hi Alex!

Welcome to SimScale! Glad to have another motorsport enthusiast! I myself love F1 and am cheering for Lewis!

Very nice of you to offer your expertise! I’m sure it will come handy in projects. Do try out some CFD projects and let us know if you’ve encountered any problems!




Thanks for your reply here. Actually, I am looking for a cheap electric skateboard. Here is the right place to discuss about this ?


Hi @bmike444!

Unfortunately not unless you want to simulate one like here: Dynamic Drop Test of a skateboard :wink: Maybe we can discuss this in private!
