This week’s post demonstrates the broad applicability of CFD with references to pumps, drones, scrubbers, towers, birds (as seen in this image), and more plus a must-see video from NASA. And it must be that time of year to announce CFD events because the calendar is expanding.

Pointwise Version 18.1 is now available for download and production use. This major release brings into the product a vast suite of tools developed over a 2-year period funded by the U.S. Air Force Materiel Command. Continue reading
I started Envenio with my former thesis advisers Andrew Gerber and Gordon Holloway back in 2010. Over the next 4 ½ years, we bootstrapped development of our core technology with revenue from consulting projects and with help from a couple of other former graduate students and National Research Council programs.

Students at Texas A&M University used Pointwise in conjunction with NASA’s DPLR CFD code to investigate hypersonic boundary layer stability on the HIFiRE-5 benchmark case. Continue reading
Letting 3 weeks of CFD news pile up in my bookmarks made writing this post a slog, but not as tough as the one you’ll have trying to read it all. So to help you make it to the end, there’s a chance to win $1 million, A LOT about accuracy, archaeology [yes, really, see image], and someone’s tenth anniversary. Continue reading

We’re happy to report that NASA has “selected for negotiation” our applied research team’s proposal “High Order Mesh Curving and Geometry Access.” Pending negotiations, work may begin in the second quarter of 2018. Continue reading
The SU2 team and Pointwise recently teamed up and ran one of the meshes generated for the AIAA High Lift Prediction Workshop using the latest release of SU2. Information regarding the workshop, the meshing process, solver setup, and the SU2 configuration file are all here.
