Pointwise Version 17.1 R3 is available for production use. In addition to many resolved issues, this release includes new capabilities for examining mesh quality metrics. In particular, you now have finer control over the cutting planes used to visualize volume mesh cells.
Pointwise's first mobile application, Y+ Calculator, is available for free on the App StoreSM. The new Y+ Calculator is a handy tool for calculating the grid spacing at a wall to achieve a target y+ value for turbulent computational fluid dynamics (CFD) computations.
Pointwise has moved its library of Glyph scripts to GitHub, a web-based version of the Git revision control system, to improve your user experience. Among the benefits is the ability to subscribe to your favorite scripts, allowing you to track every script modification and receive notifications on development progress or new version information.
Do you like working on a wide variety of challenging meshing and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) problems? Would you like to work in a high-visibility position demonstrating how Pointwise can help make CFD analysis more reliable? Pointwise, Inc. is looking for an applications engineer to do just that. Responsibilities include making benchmark grids, developing scripts, writing technical papers and articles, giving technical presentations, and producing webinars.
