Turbomachinery Applications of Pointwise's CFD Mesh Generation

Free Eval!

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

Pointwise's meshing software is ideally suited for turbomachinery applications. Pointwise's structured grid capabilities have been refined over decades in order to provide precise control over the mesh to ensure an accurate solution that converges rapidly.

In addition to mesh quality and control, Pointwise's Glyph scripting capability provides the opportunity to fully automated the mesh generation process as demonstrated by some of the select applications you'll find below.

With its native interfaces to the major solvers used for turbomachinery applications, from open source to commercial, Pointwise provides a solid basis for all your rotating machinery CFD.
