Completing a full replication study of our previously published findings on bluff-body aerodynamics was harder than we thought. Despite the fact that we have good reproducible-research practices, sharing our code and data openly. Here's what we learned from three years, four CFD codes and hundreds of runs. 

Investigation of indentations versus surface roughness for fluid induced motion of an elastically attached circular cylinder at velocities relevant to the marine environment using CFD

Vortex induced vibration aquatic clean energy (VIVACE) is a renewable energy (RE) device being developed that uses multiple oscillating circular cylinders in one degree of freedom to produce

Best Practices for Replicability, Reproducibility and Reusability of Computer-Based Experiments Exemplified by Model Reduction Software

This work aims to propose standards and best practices for the setup and publication of numerical experiments to enable the replicability and reproducibility of computer-based experiments and published results and also promote the reusability of the associated software.

ReScience is a peer-reviewed journal that targets computational research and encourages the explicit replication of already published research, promoting new and open-source implementations in order to ensure that the original research can be replicated from its description.

Virtual Micromagnetics: A Framework for Accessible and Reproducible Micromagnetic Simulation

The Virtual Micromagnetics project described here provides virtual machine simulation environments to run open-source micromagnetic simulation packages, allowing easy access to simulation packages that are often difficult to compile and install, and enable simulations and their data to be shared and stored in a single virtual hard disk file, which encourages reproducible research.

Diversity in Reproducibility

The paper stressed the importance of specifications and of access to codebases, and highlighted an issue in scholarly communication — many journals do not require nor facilitate the sharing of code.

Magnetic skyrmion research using virtual simulation environments

Magnetic skyrmions are particle-like structures in the magnetic moment field of a helimagnetic material. Since skyrmions are of the order of nanometres in size, they are a promising replacement for

Supporting Long-term Reproducible Software Execution

The requirements for software execution preservation are presented and how these requirements are supported by Occam, an open curation framework that fully preserves software and its dependencies from source to execution, promoting transparency, longevity, and re-use.

This work aims to be formal languages to articulate and compare theories and hypotheses, as well as to be used as experimental tools to investigate and help us understand complex dynamics in development.

Verifiable research: The missing link between replicability and reproducibility

This essay will explain why replicability is the basis on top of which reproducibility can be constructed, and introduce verifiability as the missing link between them, which deserves particular attention in the context of computer-aided research.

Overall, the cross-sectional geometry of the flying snake demonstrated robust aerodynamic behavior by maintaining significant lift production and near-maximum lift-to-drag ratios over a wide range of parameters.

Lift and wakes of flying snakes

Flying snakes use a unique method of aerial locomotion: they jump from tree branches, flatten their bodies, and undulate through the air to produce a glide. The shape of their body cross-section
