My friend, a fellow Romanian, just told me a funny story. She just relocated to the U.S. and was asking her dentist “When will I have the root channel treatment?”. The dentist kindly replied “Did you mean root canal, my dear?”
Human kindness is a beautiful thing. As a software developer, I often wish that computer programs would be equally technically kind. Most of them are not. Many times, when a user mistypes a command, applications crash. Continue reading
In 2013, I wrote a blog showing ANSYS users how to make MATLAB apps for ANSYS Fluent. Just as a quick reminder, a friend of mine, who is also an ANSYS Fluent and Mechanical APDL user has a Windows Matlab code programming a Linux Fluent session. She had just updated her hardware. Everything is moved to Linux. She also needed to integrate a Mechanical APDL session.
She was asking me: “Why, can’t I port my MATLAB® code running on the platform of my choice and be able to also connect to Mechanical APDL?” She challenged me to to create a less than 20 lines code example. Back in 2013, my example was for ANSYS 16.0. Here is my update for ANSYS 17.0. Continue reading

I have a friend, who is also an ANSYS Fluent user, who asked me a simple question: “Why, in an era when everything is running on the ‘cloud’, can’t I have Fluent running on the cloud and just check on it whenever I want from my own MATLAB® program?”
Actually, you can. It’s as simple as cooking. I promise. In fact, it’s a simple recipe you can cook up with less than 20 lines of MATLAB code. This will be a simple example showing how to request a summarized report and a picture of residuals from a remote running Fluent session. You can use it to create reduced order models or sophisticated controllers in MATLAB for components designed in ANSYS Fluent. Let’s begin: Continue reading
