Aidan Wimshurst began presenting CFD lectures on YouTube in 2020 under the channel ‘Fluid Mechanics 101’. The lectures quickly became a popular resource for CFD engineers, and identified a need for teaching and training in the growing CFD community. To address these needs, Aidan joined CFD Direct in November 2023 and teamed up with Chris Greenshields. Aidan and Chris aim to use their combined teaching experience to deliver the next generation of teaching and training to the growing CFD community.
