Why we don't charge by the hour & neither should you

I don’t have a daily rate. None of my pricing options are based on “money for time.” But that’s not what the average client expects to hear. So, hopefully this post will go some of the way towards explaining why I don’t charge for time & neither should you.
Our take on why hourly billing is broken and why our CFD consultancy projects always have a fixed, value-based budget

Good one! We all should stop to sell time. Bullshitrace: Time can be sold by anyone, anywhere. And anyone who finds a cheap slave can sell time even cheaper. Annoyingly, lots of the clients have no idea about what they buy...

How can we make CFD better?
I asked a dozen industry experts what they thought was the aspect CFD that is currently most in need of innovation. What is holding the industry back? But, perhaps more importantly, what they would like to see done about it?
12 industry experts share their ideas of where the CFD industry needs to innovate and what they'd like to see change.

I,M doing horizontal axis wind turbine 3 bladed simulation. I have some doubts in MRF method. Should I create any cylindrical enclosure around the blade inside the boundary surface or tunnel volume. Is there any video tutorial , kindly forward it to me

A step in the right direction?

Ansys are at least trying to remove some of the barriers to cloud adoption.

Another great piece from +The Platform​
For those who want to run high performance computing applications in the public cloud, there are limited options, but not for the reasons one might expect.

Your CFD is Wrong

So is my CFD – but with a little help from my new favourite statistician, George E.P. Box, I explain why that might not be such a bad thing after all.
Your CFD is wrong, My CFD is wrong, ALL CFD is wrong. But that doesn't mean it can't be useful.

You've got to hand it to +SpaceX & +Tesla Motors they have some pretty interesting tech and now they're into CFD with +NVIDIA.

Also, +The Platform is well worth a look if you like things HPC and Cloudy.
Elon Musk is shaking up both the car and space industries with his respective Tesla and SpaceX companies, and the irony is that while the former is totally
