wind turbine rotors

Fluid-Structure Interaction on Wind Turbine Rotor Blades

Researchers at RWTH Aachen University are studying fluid-structure interaction on wind turbine rotor blades to develop strategies to increase their life expectancy and reliability. They use Pointwise's T-Rex for control over the meshing process. (more)

Good Grid

How Do You Define a Good Grid?

Grid quality affects the accuracy and convergence of CFD solutions; however, it is difficult to define exactly what makes a good mesh for a given problem. Pointwise senior engineer John Rhoads shows some results for numerical errors on a basic advection problem to provide some insight. (more)

OpenVSP and Pointwise

OpenVSP and Pointwise Work Together to Simplify CFD on New Vehicle Designs

OpenVSP is an open source, parametric modeler used to quickly capture design intent so geometry information is easily provided in the appropriate form for various uses, including CFD. Therefore, several approaches were explored by which OpenVSP and Pointwise could be integrated to automate the volume meshing process for CFD. (more)
