While chatting with a schoolmate and friend, I came to know she was working with a non profit organisation called the Precious paws foundation.
Well, having discovered the power of Weebly, and considering that they already kind of had a lot of content developed over a year - I volunteered to design their website.
Check out the Precious Paws Foundation Website. This site is designed on weebly and their service provider's DNS settings were changed to point to the IP assigned by Weebly. The little graphic you see on top has been designed using good old MS Powerpoint (Sorry, I'm just a beginner !! , it works..). THe picture describes what the organisation does.
I must highly recommend Weebly, it's easy and quick to get up and running quickly. There are of course limitations. But some decent functionality can be added using the HTML sandboxes. The server is quick and I've never seen it down.
It took me a couple of hours set up the bare bones, using existing content on their FB page. I enjoyed it, and therefore offered to help develop and maintain the website, during my free time. Feel free to visit and mail your comments.
This is a website that offers comprehensive information including videos, applets, an extensive Glossary as well as tips on pump design. The entire material is also collated and written down in the form of a free-to-download ebook. The notes are not very involved from a mathematical aspect and has turned out to be a pleasant and interesting read.
You may get a warning about malware from this website. However, I've been exploring the website and nothing seems to have happened yet. This is definitely, a great source of information on pumps and the physics behind it's functioning as well as design. The site tries to provide you complete background theory as well to enable you to understand pump design and also provides links to good material in other sites, including those of manufacturers.

This discussion has some excellent comments related to the approach of setting up a grid as well as the logic behind such decisions. It also highlights the characteristics and concepts of using different cell types as well as the difficulties encountered in setting up a structured or unstructured grid.

URL : How many of you do Verification and Validation for your domain? or simply trust what you did is correct?
Any student of CFD can benefits from discussions in forums, especially when the replies are from experienced and seasoned multi-national professionals practicing CFD. One can always miss certain aspects or perspectives during intense research, or simply may not have come across the issue being put across in a such a succinct manner. Words and the way they are combined and finally presented, have a mysterious way of opening up one’s mind.
I feel it is important to read & participate in discussions that enhance everybody’s understanding of a subject, especially one as complicated (and beneficial) as CFD. Depending on the forum, one ends up exchanging views with an international community, which enhances the reliability of the knowledge gained from these discussions.
