Pointwise now reads and writes files for the GridPro (www.gridpro.com) structured grid generation software from Program Development Co. Pointwise exports both structured and unstructured surface grids to GridPro's fixed surfaces file formats for use in GridPro as a geometry definition.
Today, simulation teams use technologies like computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and finite element analysis (FEA) to predict product performance more accurately than ever before. That, however, doesn't always translate into funding or hiring approvals from C-level executives.
Pointwise's mobile application, Y+ Calculator, is now available for Android for free. The 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.
