Large Scale Aircraft Design Using SU2 and Pointwise

SU2 is an open-source collection of C++ and Python-based software for multi-physics, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD). This article discusses three design cases using SU2 with Pointwise: a transonic aircraft, a supersonic aircraft, and student-designed solar car.


Underneath the Overset: Other New Features in Pointwise V17.3


Underneath the Overset: Other New Features in Pointwise V17.3

With such a large and powerful suite of overset grid assembly features it is easy to overlook that Pointwise V17.3 contains many other new capabilities that will help you make all types of meshes better and faster. We highlight them here.
