Several new significant features have been added in our latest version, Pointwise V18.4. In this Q&A, our Product Planning Team will answer questions about the new features, the future of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and the Pointwise development plan.
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can be used to influence decisions early in the design process. The focus of this work was to understand the influence exerted by the turbulence model on CFD simulation results for the FDA Blood Pump benchmark geometry.
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.
Learn how a hybrid-viscous mesh can improve solution efficiency. For many applications, structured meshes are preferred. However, if more efficient meshing techniques are possible and provide accurate solutions, exploration of those alternatives is imperative. In this webinar, we compare solutions obtained using a hybrid-viscous mesh with a multi-block structured mesh.
