Meshing 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 … Continue reading
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) International hosted their automotive-focused 2018 World Congress Experience (WCX) during 10-12 of April . The conference was held at the Cobo Center in Detroit, MI—best known as the center of the U.S. automobile industry and home to … Continue reading
When using 2-D T-Rex in Pointwise to resolve highly curved surfaces with anisotropic triangles—the leading edge of a wing section for example—it’s usually recommended to keep the aspect ratio of these anisotropic triangles within some limit. We recommend an aspect … Continue reading
Pointwise was exhibiting at AIAA’s Propulsion & Energy conference this past summer in Salt Lake City, UT when one of our users visited our booth at the conference with a question about how they could split two intersecting connectors at … Continue reading
I’m Brian Mack and This Is How I Glyph. My internship with Pointwise kicked-off this past spring while I was finishing up the spring semester of my junior year at the University of Texas at Arlington. My first assignment was to … Continue reading
Continuing in a similar vein as Travis’ earlier example where he introduces the very first Glyph script he wrote that creates NACA-4 series airfoils directly in Pointwise, this week’s This Is How I Glyph entry introduces my very first attempt at Glyph scripting with AircraftMesher.glf. The … Continue reading
