FORT WORTH, TX (10 June 2013) – Pointwise announces the latest release of its Pointwise computational fluid dynamics (CFD) meshing software which includes enhanced techniques for evaluating mesh quality and new native interfaces to CFD solvers.
“At the end of the day, mesh generation is all about running the CFD solver and that's why we continue to invest in native CFD solver interfaces,” said John Chawner, Pointwise's president. “This latest release of Pointwise has a new interface to the DoD's Kestrel CFD solver and an updated interface to the DoE's Exodus II file standard. Of course, our CAE plugin API continues to provide all users with the ability to add their own solver export.”
Pointwise Version 17.1 R3 includes bug fixes and other new capabilities including finer control over how cutting planes can be positioned within a volume mesh for examining mesh quality metrics and up to a factor of 47 speed-up of shaded surface rendering.
Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing engineering analysts today – mesh generation for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The company's Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers, such as ANSYS FLUENT, STAR-CCM+, ANSYS CFX and OpenFOAM® as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows (Intel and AMD), Linux (Intel and AMD), and Mac, and has a scripting language, Glyph, that can automate CFD meshing. Large manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide rely on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution.
