Fifty2 - Jens Cornelis
Play • 30 min
Today I’m chatting with Jens Cornelis, one of the founders of FIFTY2 Technology – CFD software developers based in Freiburg, Germany & home to the particle-based CFD code PreonLab.

Jens shares some of the story of FIFTY2 Technology & the development of what became PreonLab, including:

• why PreonLab is about more than just pretty pictures (but boy, do they make some pretty pictures) & whether using a CFD package can actually be “fun”
• how it was a little “too physical” for Pixar
• how they “crossed the chasm” & their journey from academia (University of Freiburg) into business
• the benefits of partnering with a distributor & having an industry focus

A couple of “must watch” videos to get a better handle on what we’re talking about:

• The “wipers & rain” video I mentioned - https://youtu.be/J-tvjQVQ3hQ
• The water wading simulation Jens mentioned - https://youtu.be/zku5AJ-_NNI
• Another video featuring windscreen wipers, this time dealing with snow - https://youtu.be/YrWQsrBNDBg
