This Week in CFD

paw4-badgeIt’s been a long week in the CFD world with notable new software releases and financial results (“Q2 was awesome.”) We link to Envenio’s guide to CFD and to a good video about colormaps like the ones we all use to plot our CFD results. And I’d be remiss if I didn’t include news about the Pointwise UGM and our upcoming seminar in Hamburg. Continue reading

Up, Up and Away: Lorenzo Alba’s Summer Internship

LoZo-balloon-volLorenzo Alba, a mechanical engineering student at the University of Texas at Arlington, spent the summer on our Technical Support team. Many of you will get to see his work close-up at the International Meshing Roundtable this coming October. But read on to learn about this contributions to documentation, testing, and meshing.  Continue reading

Time to Register for the AIAA Geometry and Mesh Generation Workshop

HL-CRM-OPAM-1-comboNow is the time to sign-up to participate in the 2nd AIAA Geometry and Mesh Generation Workshop to be held the weekend prior to AIAA SciTech 2019 in San Diego where we will push meshing into the exascale, assess progress during the previous year and half, exercise meshing in a design environment, and discuss how to quantify the effects of the mesh on the CFD results.

This Week in CFD

hamburg-workshop-smIf Discovery Live has you jazzed about the potential of real-time simulation, there’s an article you have to read about what makes it possible. We at Pointwise announced a new case study on best practices for propulsion aerodynamics and a workshop on marine and wind energy applications to be held in Hamburg in September. Plus there’s all sorts of other news from the CFD world and beyond. Continue reading

This Is Your Year to Win The Meshy Award

Meshy-Award-TrophyAt the Pointwise User Group Meeting 2018 in Fort Worth on 14-15 November 2018 we will be recognizing a mesh with the coveted Meshy Award for its visual appeal, originality, and uniqueness. The prior winners of this prestigious award exemplify all three of those attributes and after you’ve seen them we hope you’ll be driven to do even better.

Discover Meshing Best-Practices in Pointwise for Propulsion Aerodynamics Applications

structured-fine-symmetry2Meshing remains somewhat of an art. Engineers tend to spend a significant amount of time generating grids, while mathematicians develop more advanced algorithms that may end up being exercised on meshes inappropriate for a given application. A mesh that provides a suitable solution for one flow condition can be shown to be inadequate at a different flow condition.
