Meshing the Potsdam Propeller with Pointwise

In this new on-demand webinar we demonstrate how to generate a hybrid hexahedral-tetrahedral mesh for the Potsdam Propeller. You’ll see both approaches (solid meshing and fault tolerance meshing) to generating surface meshes on the geometry model, the T-Rex technique for … Continue reading

In Pursuit of the Ideal Mesh

Approaches to discretizing models for physics-based simulation have matured considerably over the years with several meshing techniques from which to choose including: multi-block structured, overset, octree, advancing front, and so on. Each of these approaches has its benefits and drawbacks when comparing one with another. Convergence and solution accuracy are evaluated among three mesh configurations of an ONERA M6 wing to help determine whether there exist any advantages of using an unstructured mixed-cell meshing approach over other unstructured advancing front and multi-block structured options. Continue reading

Myth-Busting CFD

The best way to get more people to use CFD is to eliminate the FUD – fear, uncertainty and doubt – that people have about CFD and what it can do for them. The folks at Mentor Graphics Mechanical Analysis … Continue reading
