Case Study: A New Mesh Adaptation Procedure That Really Works

Pointwise and ISimQ developed an efficient adaptation procedure for effective control of discretization error on real-world cases that adapts to underlying geometry while still efficiently resolving the mesh with high aspect ratios in boundary layers. Shown here are results computed … Continue reading
