Wind tunnel testing is necessary in order to validate the results.  Remember Microsoft's Excel math mistakes?  If an error like that crept into CFD calculations, the results could get "interesting".

This makes sense, Beth. Wind tunnels are both time-consuming and expensive, aren't they?

Beth, this is where CAE codes make a big difference.  It is possible to explore a large part of the design space in the computer.  This gives the design team the ability find optimal, or near optimal, parameters for their rel-world testing.

Another interesting aspect is the cloud for CFD.  These are highly parallel simulations that seem more amenable to massive parallel solutions.  It is also interesting to see that this is a public cloud solution.

Here's a variety of views into the complex production processes at Santa's factory. Happy Holidays!
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
Thanks to 3D printing, some custom-made prosthetic limbs, and a Lego set, one lucky dog and a tortoise has learned new tricks.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
With Radio Shack on the ropes, let's take a memory trip through the highlights of Radio Shack products.
