About Pointwise

Another Fine Mesh is a blog about mesh generation, computational fluids dynamics (CFD) and all things related (and some things not).  It is written by us folks at Pointwise where we’ve been developing mesh generation software for CFD since 1994 (and some of us a lot longer).

AFM is a forum for discussions about computer aided engineering and how it impacts both us and you.  We’ll share our thoughts on computer hardware and software, industry events and personalities.  Yes, we’ll also write about what we’re doing, what we’re thinking, and where we’re going.

We invite your comments on all of it.

You may also email your questions, comments, and complaints to blog@pointwise.com.

    Hello there,
    My name is Nicholas Tsagarakis and I am currently a student at Music Technology and Acoustics department in Greece.
    I would like – if it is possible, to have the permission to use a picture from your blog, in my thesis’ presentation.
    The picture is this one https://afinemesh.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/caedium5-poly-mesh.png
    If it is a problem for you, please do not hesitate to refuse.

    Thanks a lot,
    N.T.

    Nicholas: Please contact the true owner of the image. http://www.symscape.com/blog/caedium-v5-sneak-peek-polyhedral-meshes-improve-cfd

    I’m curious: why is a music technology student interested in polyhedral meshes?

  4. Nicholas says:

    Hello again,
    Interesting question. That is actually because the subject of my thesis is about the Finite Element Method, in the field of Acoustics and Vibrations.

    Thanks a lot for you time,
    Nicholas T.

    That sounds like an interesting topic. I’d like to learn more when you’re finished.

    • Nicholas says:

      I made some educational examples about vibrating solids, and mostly using eigenfrequency analysis. I suppose because of the “educational” topic, you wouldn’t have something to learn from that. However it happens to be in English (instead of Greek), so I will definately remember your request.

      Thanks again,
      Nicholas T.

    Hello again. So this is my final thesis https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55300291/TsagarakisNikolaos2014.pdf you could take a look or use it however you want.
    It’s separated in 3 parts, unfortunately the theoretical part is quite big because as I mentioned previously, it’s been written for educational causes mostly.

    Thanks again for your time,
    N.T.
