Workshop on Marine CFD Accuracy and Efficiency

Eventbrite-WkspHamburg2018 - CopyJoin Pointwise in Hamburg on 12 November 2019 for a workshop on mesh generation for marine applications. We will demonstrate  meshing for two marine benchmark cases: the Potsdam propeller and the KCS hull. The workshop is free to attend but registration is required.

Pointwise has been used for many years for CFD preprocessing of ship hulls, propellers and appendages. It reduces the number of computational cells needed for marine CFD simulations because of its ability to generate high aspect ratio cells, critical to resolve high Reynolds number boundary layer flows, and the flexibility it provides to use different mesh topologies to suit different geometry and flow resolution needs. Using fewer cells leads to quicker turnaround times of CFD simulations.


Recent work in Pointwise has increasingly automated the mesh generation process so mesh generation turnaround times can be decreased as well. The T-Rex, anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion technique, in particular automatically generates layers of regular hexahedral cells to resolve boundary layers while conforming to specified spacing, quality, and interference specifications. The end result is high-quality, high aspect ratio cells generated quickly in an automated process.

What: Pointwise for Marine Workshop

When: 12 November 2019

Where: Radisson Blu Hotel, Hamburg

The workshop is free. Registration is required. Don’t delay, register today.
