CFD Meshing Software offers diagnostics, solver interfaces.Pointwise, Inc. Fort Worth, TX 76104-1107
Jun 17, 2013 Running on Windows, Linux, and Mac, Pointwise v17.1 R3 computational fluid dynamics (CFD) meshing software generates structured, unstructured, and hybrid meshes. Features include native interfaces to CFD solvers, such as DoD's Kestrel CFD solver as well as DoE's Exodus II file standard. CAE plug-in API provides users with ability to add their own solver export. Also, software offers fine control over how cutting planes can be positioned within volume mesh for examining mesh quality metrics.
CFD Meshing Software meshes boundary layers using fewer cells.Pointwise, Inc. Fort Worth, TX 76104-1107
Feb 27, 2013 Run on Windows, Linux, and Mac, Pointwise v17.1 R2 interfaces with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solvers and generates structured, unstructured, and hybrid meshes. Included algorithm for agglomerating cells in hybrid mesh improves reduction in cell count; best reduction achieved during testing was 377 million cell mesh reduced to ~155 million cells. Automated T-Rex hybrid mesh generation technique extrudes layers of anisotropic tetrahedra in boundary layer region.
CFD Meshing Software features advancing front algorithm.Pointwise, Inc. Fort Worth, TX 76104-1107
Jan 04, 2013 In addition to accelerated file reading and writing, Pointwise v17.1 includes advancing front algorithm for unstructured surface mesh generation. This method offers alternative to Delaunay algorithm and can be applied on domain-by-domain basis or as default method for all new domains. Program also includes expanded options for editing mesh topology, tools for distributing mesh points along curves, and additional interfaces to CFD solvers.
CFD Software supports hybrid mesh generation.Pointwise, Inc. Fort Worth, TX 76104-1107
Aug 27, 2012 Automating generation of hybrid meshes for viscous flows, Gridgen v15.18 increases recovery of prism cells from layers of extruded tetrahedra in boundary layer, and offers option to use Green-Gauss formulation for computing prism volume that is more forgiving than default formulation. Version 15.18 also optimizes algorithm's ability to smoothly extrude more tetrahedral layers from concave regions.
CFD Meshing Software supplies wake resolution capabilities.Pointwise, Inc. Fort Worth, TX 76104-1107
Apr 07, 2011 Gridgen v15.17 CFD meshing software features T-Rex hybrid meshing technique that allows for resolution of wakes and other off-body flow phenomena. Also included is T-Rex (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion) support for baffles, which lets user insert triangulated surface mesh into middle of volume in vicinity of flow feature. As post-processing step, T-Rex stacks extruded tetrahedra into prisms to minimize cell count and optimize performance of user's CFD solver.
CFD Meshing Software addresses CAD interoperability issues.Pointwise, Inc. Fort Worth, TX 76104-1107
Mar 10, 2010 Confronting CAD geometry data problems, Pointwise v16.03 incorporates Solid Meshing features that can automatically create watertight geometry models without gaps and overlaps. Solid models are watertight collections of surfaces, while quilts are subregions of geometry that capture engineering intent, simplify topology, and are meshed as single unit. Other tools include those for surface trimming/untrimming, solid model import, and automatic/manual model and quilt assembly.
Meshing Software for CFD cuts hybrid mesh sizes.Pointwise, Inc. Fort Worth, TX 76104-1107
Dec 07, 2009 Designed to generate structured, unstructured, and hybrid meshes, Gridgen v15.15 interfaces with CFD solvers, such as ANSYS FLUENT, STAR-CD, ANSYS CFX, and OpenFOAM. Program's T-Rex technique extrudes layers of high aspect ratio tetrahedra for boundary layer resolution, gradually transitioning to isotropic tets away from body. Optional post-processing step combines adjacent tetrahedra into pyramid and prism elements in extrusion layer.
Computational Fluid Dynamics Software helps build hybrid meshes.Pointwise, Inc. Fort Worth, TX 76104-1107
Jul 01, 2009 Gridgen v15.14 offers techniques for generating larger, higher-quality hybrid meshes for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Automated anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion generates mesh characterized by layers of tetrahedra in near-wall region for boundary layer resolution and isotropic tetrahedral mesh in farfield. Functionality also reduces occurrence of highly skewed mesh cells in concave as well as convex regions while ensuring smooth blending of mesh from viscous to inviscid regions.
Software offers mesh quality monitoring tools.Pointwise, Inc. Fort Worth, TX 76104-1107
Jan 22, 2009 With Pointwise v16.02 for CFD, users can apply techniques such as drag-and-drop cutting planes and probing individual mesh cells to gain detailed insight into suitability of mesh according to 25 metric functions. Program includes capability for automated and proactive mesh quality monitoring, providing user with top-down, global view of mesh quality. Additional features include 20 native CAE solver interfaces, 2-dimensional grids, and several Gridgen compatibility tools.
CFD Software provides suite of quality monitoring tools.Pointwise, Inc. Fort Worth, TX 76104-1107
Jan 21, 2009 Pointwise v16.02 mesh generation software for CFD features suite of tools for mesh quality interrogation and monitoring, including capability for automated/proactive monitoring. User can apply drag-and-drop cutting planes and also probe individual mesh cells to analyze mesh according to 25 metric functions. It also features 20 native CAE solver interfaces; geometry modeling capabilities such as Coons patches, sweep surfaces, and fillets; as well as Gridgen compatibility tools.
