My name is Niels Erikstrup. I have a M.Sc.Mech.Eng. and a very very distant past in CFD work, as I used StarCD in 1996-1999. In those days we could only dream of one day to have an automatic mesh generator at hand and one day to surpass 100K cell models. We did however gain many insights and improved a bunch of products, mainly for cement and power plants.
Since then I have not personally used CFD, so the knowledge gained in the last millenium has mainly alloved me to include CFD & multiphysics specialists in many subsequent product developments projects.
Two years ago I started my own company, Fionia AG, now located in Luzern, Switzerland. I draw a lot in Autodesk Inventor 3D and do rapid prototyping galore. From time to time I have some CFD, heat transfer and FEA issues, so hopefully Simscale is the answer. I’m the company’s only engineer so far, so it is relevant to regain a hands-on CFD simulation expertise. The software is sooo much more user friendly nowadays, so it all seems quite straight forward - at least based on the first afternoon and the first Simscale tutorials. Looking forward to more!
