Automotive Applications of Pointwise's CFD Mesh Generation

Free Eval!

Apply Pointwise to your own meshes with a no-cost, no-obligation evaluation license.

Whether you're engaged in production CFD to refine an existing design, doing parametric analysis to support design of a new vehicle, or researching advanced concepts for the next generation of vehicles, Pointwise provides all your mesh generation capabilities.

Structured grids and unstructured and hybrid meshes can all be generated depending on your application. And because different applications call for different flow solvers, Pointwise is the one mesh generator to work with them all.

Plus, Pointwise's Glyph scripting lets you customize and automate the mesh generation process with macros and templates.
