Today is the first episode with 2 guests — Darrin Stephens & Chris Sideroff — business partners in Applied CCM, based in Australia & Canada respectively.

Whilst Applied CCM have several CFD-related activities, this interview is essentially all about Caelus, their CFD software derived from OpenFOAM®. I really wanted to take this opportunity to dig into the whys & wherefores of Caelus, including:

• what makes Caelus different to OpenFOAM, both in terms of features & philosophy;
• why forks/derivatives detract from their parent open-source project & what they signify;
• what “industrially-hardened” means in a CFD context & why Red Hat Linux was a source of inspiration;
• why they have "a thing" about validation;
