Pointwise Solutions

for CFD Mesh Generation

You can generate structured multi-block, unstructured, hybrid, and overset meshes for viscous simulations with precise control over point placement and clustering to get the resolution you need. At the same time, Pointwise’s core meshing methods produce cells of high quality to ensure convergence and accuracy in your CFD solution.

CFD and Feature Questions Answered by Pointwise Product Planning Team

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.


Hybrid Conformal Meshing for Wind Farm CFD Applications

Learn more about techniques that can be used to generate hybrid conformal meshes that span the entirety of a wind farm. In this webinar, we discuss how to efficiently move from the terrain scale of a wind farm to the wind turbine scale and how the process was automated to support the arbitrary placement of wind turbines for siting applications.


Pointwise and the Evolution of Faster, Easier, More Reliable Automated Meshing

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.

Fluid-Structure Interaction on Wind Turbine Rotor Blades

Researchers at RWTH Aachen University are studying fluid-structure interaction on wind turbine rotor blades to develop strategies to increase their life expectancy and reliability. They use Pointwise's T-Rex for control over the meshing process.


Glyph Scripting Automates Terrain Meshing for Wind Turbine Siting

Texas A&M University student Scott Evetts worked as a Pointwise intern this summer. He had no prior CFD or mesh generation experience, but he was able to accomplish a great deal in three months. Here he describes one of his Glyph scripting projects.


Co-Simulation for the Renewable Energy Sector

Many simulations within the field of renewable energy involve the coupling of different physics. An exemplary example is the analysis of a wind turbine. Here the structure (blades, tower, generator, gearbox, etc.) is interacting with the fluid.
