  1. Seminars have always been an important aspect of education. It's an opportunity to either gain knowledge on an unknown topic or develop ideas regarding something you already know.It's a place where you meet highly skilled persons and get to know their recent researches.You should attend at least a couple of seminars annually to keep yourself updated about the advancements taking place in your field. I've seen many people who keep avoiding seminars, although interested, just because they have never attended a seminar before. If this is your case, then I've only one thing to say "There's always a first time." Until and unless you attend a seminar, how can you overcome the fright? Attending a seminar for the first time does not mean that you'll feel low or less confident than others. Here are a few tips that can make you seminar-ready. Here are a few tips that can help you get through a seminar and actually learn from it. 1. Know the Topic Usually there are no prerequisites to attend a seminar but ideally you should know something about the seminar you're going to attend. First know the topic, yes the topic. I've seen a lot of people coming for a seminar and asking what the topic is! Know the meaning of each term related to the topic, like definitions, some dates, names of some important people in that field, etc. If you still have some time and energy left, know who the speaker is and his background. You can look for his area of study, some research works, etc. So now that you know what you need to know, I'll suggest you some ways by which you can know it.(I just hope I didn't confuse you. Oops, I did! ) Now-a-days you can literally find everything on the web, sometimes even the details you need about the speaker from his research works. Now that you have the basic knowledge of the topic, you can consult the faculties if you feel like. You can find a lot of details online but only after talking to the profs you get to know which information is relevant for the seminar you're going to attend. Knowing more never goes in vain, but off course you wouldn't like to clog your mind with so many points. If you feel it hard to remember all the points, you can make short notes and take it with you to the seminar. Just make sure your focus is on the speaker as soon as the seminar starts and not on these notes. 2. A proper attire it's never mandatory to wear something formal for attending a seminar but avoid fancy dresses. Remember you're in the professional world, dress up like that. If you like make-ups go for it, but keep it light and simple. Just make sure you're comfortable with your look. In most of the cases, dressing up properly makes people feel confident. 3. Non-verbal communication People can communicate a lot of things even without uttering a single word, through their body gestures, eye movement, etc. ere lies the importance of non-verbal communication. You can put a smile on your face just to show that you're there to learn and not to oppose the idea the speaker is going to present. Nodding your head sometimes during the speech can also communicate a lot about you. It means you're listening and understanding the topic as well. 4. Be attentive It's not important to understand each and every part of the speech but at least you should get the essence of the speech. Just remember that the seminars are designed to provide you with a usable content on a variety of relevant subjects and keep you updated with the latest advancements in your field. So, try to gain as much knowledge as possible. 5. Asking Questions It's the best way to get you ideas about the topic reviewed by an experienced person, you'll get to know if you're on the right track. Speakers also encourage questions and it's a way of learning on their part too. But whenever you ask a question, make sure you know exactly what you need to know clearly. Frame the question in your mind first, you certainly don't want to stumble while asking. At this moment, I certainly don't want to demotivate you, just remember that silence is better than asking "silly questions". So the next time you're going for a seminar, you already know what to do and how to do! Happy "Seminar-ing" !
  2. Hello guys, hope you all are doing well. I was just wondering how to keep all of you engaged to this group and here I have an awesome plan. Why not we post a pic of our recent CAD project here and also mention the name of the software we used to make it. If you can all any other details like the time it took it'll be great!
  3. Hello Mitch, welcome to the group. Hope you'll have a great time here.
  4. I've recently started using Solidworks. It's great! I also used Hyperworks (only once). Did you try SimScale? It works in the browser itself.
  5. Hey everyone, Hope you all are doing good! Let's start our conversation in this club by knowing each other better. I would like to know which state or country you are from? Are you still in college or an employee? Please comment a line or two introducing yourself. I'm currently in the final year of my mechanical engineering from Techno India University, West Bengal I would love to know more about you all!
  6. Hello everyone, Thank you so much for joining this club. But we still need more members os that we can have better discussions and increase the numbers of ideas and views shared here. These are the things you can do for the club: 1. Share this club to all you social media profiles, pages, group, etc. 2. Add the link to this club on all your websites, blogs, etc. After you're done, take a screenshot and post it here to inspire others to do the same. Off course we all want to be recognized and appreciated for what we do I've recently added the link to this club on my Autodesk profile. Check it out here: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/profile/L0IN4VI34RYS5 You'll also find some screencasts there, hope you enjoy them too!

  10. The project explains how the type of mesh can influence the results obtained for the mixing of flow in a pipe. The simulation is done on a cloud-based CAE platform called SimScale. The link to the project is here. This project is a part of the SimScale Professional Training on CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics). The pipe flow geometry, originally uploaded by the SimScale Staff, available in the public projects. For this internal flow problem, a Hex-dominant parametric mesh is used. Two types of meshes are created for the problem - a coarse mesh ( which accommodates all the features of the geometry) and a fine mesh ( by increasing the fineness). Coarse mesh ( Fineness: 1-Very coarse) Fine mesh ( Fineness : 4-Fine) The same type of analysis is performed for both the meshes (Fluid dynamics: Incompressible). Same boundary conditions and simulation controls are defined for both the meshes. Simulation run: Coarse mesh Simulation run: Fine mesh The simulation results are post-processed (clip filter is used) to get the contour plot of the velocity flow field. Post-processor screenshot for coarse mesh Post-processor screenshot for fine mesh As revealed by the results the fines mesh captures specific physics (like flow separation and vorticities) more accurately. Isn't that expected? Well, not always! This blog was previously posted on Behance.
  11. In simple words, head is a representation of the energy contained in a fluid, it may be potential or kinetic. If you want a detailed explanation you can read the answers on Quora to the question "What is head in pumps? What is the physical meaning of head in pressure head, velocity head, kinetic head, etc.?" Although the answers are written for pumps, the explanations are quite well-written and valid for turbines as well.
  12. I'm sorry I just forgot to mention that I've already corrected the mistake mentioned by @Alban Kronenberger. Thanks for pointing it out. P.S. ~ If you find any such mistakes, comment on the post, even if you're not fully sure. I'll verify it and edit it.
  13. Dear @Alban Kronenberger, Thank you so much for pointing out the mistake. I actually interchanged the examples of High head and medium head turbines, while formatting. And it's good to see people, actually reading your post so carefully and providing you feedback. Regards, Tania
  14. Thank you for the suggestion, I'll start working on it soon.
  15. Thank you Sir. The comments do inspire me to keep writing, and I wait for yours.
