flow solution at freestream Mach number of 0.85 for NASA's Common Research Model

This flow solution at freestream Mach number of 0.85 for NASA's Common Research Model was computed by CRAFT Tech using their CRUNCH CFD solver on a hex-core mesh from Pointwise V18.3. The flow is colored by Mach number. Image created in Ensight 10.2.

What’s New in Pointwise V18.3

FORT WORTH, TX (28 October 2019) – The webinar, “New Features in Pointwise V18.3,” spotlights how to generate and examine a hex-core mesh to improve solution accuracy and demonstrates other marquee features in Pointwise V18.3.

Explore the ability to use regular hexahedral cells, instead of unstructured tetrahedral cells, to fill the space between the final T-Rex (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion) front and the farfield topology. The use of regular hexahedra in the mesh can improve the CFD flow solver’s rate of convergence and accuracy of the solution. Pointwise V18.3 also offers a redesigned Examine command focused on ease of use.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) today – reliably generating high-fidelity meshes. The company's Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured, overset and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers such as ANSYS FLUENT®, STAR-CCM+®, OpenFOAM®, and SU2 as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac, and has a scripting language, Glyph, that can automate CFD meshing. Manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide have relied on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution since 1994.
