The CFD-software FLACS was developed in parallel with experimental research projects and has developed into a leading tool for CFD explosion modeling studies involving gas explosions. The example […] shows how flame accelerations can generate high overpressures and external blast waves in a typical industry facility. The resulting explosion modeling demonstrates how external blast pattern can be far from symmetric.

DOUBLE FINE IS NOW ON BANDCAMP!

You’ve been asking for it, so we finally bucked up and sorted out the logistics to make our game soundtracks available on the most audiophile-friendly, DRM-free, FLAC-iest music store on the internet!

All of the game soundtracks we sell elsewhere are available here, including Dropchord (brand new!), Psychonauts, Brütal Legend, The Cave, and Middle Manager of Justice. More to come, so stay tuned!

And Now, Let’s All Watch This Spider Do Some Cartwheels

"Scientists have identified a new — and exceptionally agile — cartwheeling-spider. Oh, and did we mention that they’ve also built it a robotic companion?

The spider, Cebrennus rechenbergi or the Moroccan Flic-Flac spider, was first found by Ingo Rechenberg of the Technical University of Berlin. Rechenberg passed the spider along to Peter Jäger of the Senckenberg Research Institute in Frankfurt to determine its precise taxonomy. But before he did, Rechenberg used the spider’s gymnastic moves to design the robot you see alongside the spider in this video.”

Since 1980 numerous explosion experiments have been performed by GexCon in collaboration with other groups to further understand explosion phenomena. GexCon used these experiments for development and validation of the FLACS explosion models.  The image […] demonstrates the FLACS simulation compared to the actual explosion experiment.
