I started this blog at at the first of the year at larryshapiro.tumblr.com and have created 6 months worth of content there. I have since decided that the format provided on tumblr does not adequately offer everything that I’m looking for.

So as of June 1, 2014, I’ll be posting to this new site.

Thank you for visiting.

Do you have Bill Friedrich’s email or phone so i can ask him? know anyone else i can inquire with in Chicagoland? have many old CFD journals as well. thx Dale Belles
