Why S-shaped cooling channels are bad and how to improve
In this video, Joris Coddé (CTO of Diabatix) explains the standard cooling solution for machine components and electronics: the liquid cold plate with an S-shaped cooling channel. It is stressed why such a design poses a problem for the electronics mounted on such a cold plate; the electronics near the outlet of the cooling channel are subject to an increased risk of overheating.

[Tutorial 1] Paraview - How to visually check your mesh from the outside and inside
This video shows how you can visually check the quality of your mesh in paraview. It is explained how you can visualize the mesh by selecting the option surface with edges in the representation toolbar. In addition, the steps for visualizing internal cells by using the clip filter and enabling the crinkle clip option are shown.

[Tutorial 2] Paraview - Tips & Tricks: Save time by saving states
Never underestimate the value of time! Our one and only Tech Queen Roxy demonstrates how you can save a bunch of it by using states in Paraview. A state is the collection of all filters and settings you have applied on one case. By saving this state and by loading it and applying it to a similar case, you can easily automate repetitive work. Check it out!

Web-Based Tool Guides Thermal CFD Design
Many engineers struggle with the thermal design of their product. Thermal analysis and design is a specialty among engineers, but most engineers do not dig deep enough to gain the experience necessary to become an expert. Additionally, the complexity of the fluid flows in real parts disrupts efforts to simplify this design process.

Guidelines to successfully fail in CFD
Sometimes you cannot avoid being successful, despite how hard you try. However, if you carefully follow these 10 guidelines, failure is almost unavoidable. Moreover, you might even be lucky enough to drag along all people working with you. So if you have the ambition to fail at whatever CFD project given to you, make sure to follow these guidelines to the letter.
