Two interesting talks

I would like to share with you a couple of videos coming from the Michigan Engineering (University of Michigan) that I find particularly interesting and informative. The first one is given by Phil Roe, a well-known person in the finite volume community. He gives a critical account of the state-of-the-art in CFD, meshes and existing problems. This talk is to listen absolutely if you are interested in computations.

As a side remark, there is a pretty interesting report produced by NASA on a very close topic:

And as promised, the second video is devoted to common misconceptions in aerodynamics. It is delivered by Doug McLean who made his career at Boeing. To listen absolutely, if you want to understand truly, for example, why airplanes fly (but not only):

Have a pleasant listening!
