CFD simulations have played a vital role in helping engineers design efficient turbomachines. These simulations not only reduce prototyping cost but also help improve efficiency and performance. One challenge with these simulations is the engineering time required to get accurate solutions. Engineers spend tremendous amounts of time to generate a good quality mesh and then wait for several hours - if not for days - to get a converged solution.

Scientists at Stanford University have developed a low-cost, emissions-free device that uses an ordinary AAA battery to produce hydrogen by water electrolysis.  The battery sends an electric current through two electrodes that split liquid water into hydrogen and oxygen gas. Unlike other water splitters that use precious-metal catalysts, the electrodes in the Stanford device are made of inexpensive and abundant nickel and iron.In addition to producing hydrogen, the novel water splitter could be used to make chlorine gas and sodium hydroxide, an important industrial chemical,
