Join Us in Daejeon for a Workshop on Marine Applications of CFD Mesh Generation

We invite you to join us on 16 October 2017 in Daejeon, South Korea for the workshop Efficient Meshing with Pointwise. There is no fee for the workshop but registration is required.

The core of the workshop will consist of three technical discussions.

Marine Propeller Applications: This presentation will focus on simulation efficiency and its dependence on the mesh generation process. The aim is to better understand the relative merits and drawbacks of various meshing strategies, using a marine propeller as a model. The considered meshing strategies include hybrid and structured overset, introducing an approach for computing simulation efficiency, and exploring the process for generating each mesh. Best practices are highlighted with an emphasis on mesh quality, and the ease of surface and volumetric refinement. Each mesh is evaluated against the amount of time required to create the mesh, its cell count and quality, the accuracy of the results, and the time needed to run the simulation to a prescribed convergence threshold.


Aerospace Applications: Pointwise is widely used in the aerospace industry, providing high quality meshing techniques, precise control over grid point placement, and the ability to automate all or part of the meshing process with the Glyph scripting language. We will demonstrate examples of external aerodynamics and propulsion applications, and discuss how to use Pointwise for more efficient and accurate CFD analysis.

Mastering Geometry Cleanup: Using imported CAD geometry as the basis for CFD meshing can be fraught with problems. This presentation demonstrates the suite of tools available in Pointwise to speed the CAD cleanup process. Complex, practical CAD examples will demonstrate how to visualize model tolerances, identify and heal gaps in geometry, apply strategies to identify and recreate missing surfaces, and determine the suitability of your CAD models prior to meshing.

You can find the workshop’s details including location, time, and agenda on our website. But don’t delay – register today for what is certain to be a valuable event.
