Improve CFD simulation efficiency and accuracy using solution adapted meshing. In this webinar, we detail the process for developing a solution-based mesh adaptation schema. Solution driven mesh adaptation can accelerate the convergence rate by 50 percent or more, while simultaneously reducing estimated error by an order of magnitude.
Watch a webinar where Amine Ben Haj Ali from Bombardier explains the Meshing & Adaptive Re-meshing Server (MARS) which automatically generates meshes. This reduces meshing time and ensures consistent meshes across geometry variations no matter who is using it.
Watch a presentation given at the Pointwise User Group Meeting by Professor John Dannenhoffer of Syracuse University explaining his techniques for fitting a cloud of points with a smooth, watertight, B-spline based boundary representation. This technology has been incorporated into Pointwise to allow higher quality meshing on discrete geometry.
In-flight icing is a severe hazard to all aircraft and has been a point of concern for manned aviation for many years. UAVs are a new technology, and icing only recently has been addressed as a key limitation to UAV operations. Watch a webinar on how to use icing simulations on unmanned aerial vehicles to develop ice protection systems.
Improve CFD simulation efficiency and accuracy using solution adapted meshing. Watch this recorded Let’s Talk Meshing Live Q&A session to learn how mesh adaptation can help make your CFD process more efficient and accurate.
Icing is a severe hazard that significantly limits the usage of autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) methods are a vital tool for understanding the effects of icing on UAVs. One of the most challenging tasks for the simulation is the generation of high-quality meshes of complex ice shapes. Find out how Pointwise met the challenge and decreased the mesh creation time with its automation.
In this webinar, we demonstrate the marquee features in Pointwise V18.3. Explore the ability to use regular hexahedral cells to fill the space between the final T-Rex front and the farfield topology. This technique improves the accuracy of your CFD solution. Examine your mesh with a redesigned Examine command focused on ease of use.
Read about how Pointwise generates high-order curved meshes for high Reynolds number flows and how it helps you do more in less time with fewer resources while lowering program uncertainty and expense.
Watch a presentation given at the Pointwise User Group Meeting explaining why high-order and adaptation are necessary for mesh convergence.
Generating high-quality automated meshes for CFD analysis has been an industry goal for more than 30 years. Meshing solution developers have spent much of those years trying to create user-independent solutions, only to be stymied by the inherent complexities of geometry models, the mesh, and the CFD solution. Pointwise researchers have made tremendous strides in this area lately by building on the work of others over the last three decades. As a result, they expect to release several new features very soon that will help make automated meshing a reality. Find out more about these latest advances.
Download the technical paper presented at AIAA SciTech 2019 that describes a process that automatically creates unstructured meshes from water-tight geometry input using Glyph scripting. Utilizing this process, one can reduce meshing time by up to 90 percent and manual input from hours to minutes.
Watch a presentation given at the Pointwise User Group Meeting about how Pointwise used custom Glyph scripts to automatically generate high-quality unstructured meshes for Engineering Sketch Pad (ESP) geometries, saving time and freeing users from repetitive and tedious tasks.
Read a case study on how Glyph scripts integrated with Pointwise can reduce meshing time from up to 15 hours to one or two, and time spent on manual input from 12 hours to a few minutes. Automation also ensures a more consistent application of best practices for higher quality results.
Learn how mesh adaptation can improve CFD solution accuracy. Mesh adaptation can automatically add finer mesh resolution in areas where it is needed by examining an error metric or flow gradients to determine where the existing mesh is not adequately resolving the flow.
Several meshing techniques and meshing best-practices have been developed while creating workshop-supplied meshes for the 3rd and 4th AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshops. These meshing strategies and lessons learned have been collected to help CFD practitioners gather experience meshing these types of challenging internal flow problems.
This webinar introduces a feature currently in development for mesh adaptation. It accepts from the flow solver a point cloud on which target cell sizes are specified. This point cloud is used as a clustering source in Pointwise to adapt both the volume and surface meshes.
In this webcast, we use a diffusing serpentine inlet to demonstrate some of the more advanced structured meshing techniques available in Pointwise. These meshing strategies highlight how Pointwise users can generate uniform, boundary-layer resolved grids with exceptional cell shape quality where the inlet’s shape transitions from something with a square cross-section upstream to a circular shape at the exit.
