SU2 is an open-source collection of C++ and Python-based software for multi-physics, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD). This article discusses three design cases using SU2 with Pointwise: a transonic aircraft, a supersonic aircraft, and student-designed solar car.
With such a large and powerful suite of overset grid assembly features it is easy to overlook that Pointwise V17.3 contains many other new capabilities that will help you make all types of meshes better and faster. We highlight them here.
Pointwise welcomes KFour Metrics in Hyderabad, India to its team of worldwide partners distributing Pointwise. India is not a new market for Pointwise, but previously customers were supported directly from the United States.

Researchers at Penn State University are using T-Rex anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion in Pointwise to make high-quality, boundary layer-resolved hybrid meshes for CFD analysis of a critical flight safety issue: ice build-up on aircraft structures.
