Before running any CFD simulations we need to generate a mesh around our geometry to perform calculations on. This page is meant to document the standard process we use to generate this mesh for ARIS rockets. Inputs: Geometry exported from some CAD software in named STL format. The sample OpenFOAM case folder (ofcase_heidi_fullbody_meshing) Outputs: 3D
This page is meant as a brief overview and reference of the principal components of rocket aerodynamics, such as aerodynamic forces and design of nose cone, fins and boat-tail.
This page is meant as a reference of the principal components and other useful information about the OpenFOAM CFD toolkit.
This page is meant to give an overview of the general CFD workflow when in a large team, such as ARIS Space.
In autumn 2018, I teamed up with classmates Silvia Nauer and Mikael Stellio for a project in the ETHZ course Physically-Based Simulation for Computer Graphics. The objective of our project was to create a video of a meteorite crashing into the sea, by implementing our own FLIP fluids solver and rendering the video with Blender.
As part of a Case Studies seminar at ETH, I recently studied and presented the paper behind AlphaGo, titled “Mastering the game of Go with deep neural networks and tree search”. This is a summary of my findings about this sophisticated AI software. Google DeepMind made quite a splash in 2016 when their AI AlphaGo
I have begun work on the creation of a simple 2D LAN-based multiplayer game with Python. I decided to log my progress as I go in a series of articles, partly for my own future reference, and partly for anyone else who is taking on a similar endeavour for the first time and is looking
In this document I explore the mathematical peculiarities of modular arithmetic and Elliptic Curves, and then move on to their representation with the programming language Python. Elliptic Curves are a class of mathematical curves with a very peculiar property: any non-vertical line that intersects an Elliptic Curve in one point, also has two other intersection
