Webinars Focus on New Capabilities in Pointwise’s CFD Meshing Software

FORT WORTH, TX (6 February 2013)—Pointwise Version 17.1’s new capabilities, from new CAE solver compatibility to an advancing front algorithm for unstructured surface meshing, will be the subject of a free webinar on 21 February hosted by Carolyn Dear Woeber and Erick Gantt.

The webinar is offered twice, at 9 a.m. CST and 3 p.m. CST. To register, go to www.pointwise.com/webinar.

The explanation of new features will include how to
-- Export grids to Pointwise’s newly supported CAE solvers
-- Reduce the time to open/save Pointwise project files with a reformulated file format
-- Create CAE plugins using face-based data
-- Specify attributes for CAE solvers
-- Use an advancing front algorithm for surface meshes
-- Create connectors on geometry boundaries
-- Add or remove edges to/from existing domains
-- Add or remove faces to/from existing blocks
-- Use more than twenty new accelerators for Pointwise commands
-- Use the Distribute Probe to examine grid point spacings
-- Get directional feedback when copying connector distributions

Mrs. Woeber has more than 10 years experience in mesh generation for a range of application areas, with a specialty in unstructured viscous mesh generation. At Pointwise, she is manager of the Support and Consulting Team, overseeing customer support, quality assurance, training, consulting and documentation.  Before joining Pointwise, she was a member of the NSF Engineering Research Center’s Computational Simulation and Design Center at Mississippi State University, where she earned a B.S. and an M.S. in Aerospace Engineering in 2000 and 2004, respectively.

Erick Gantt has more than 15 years experience in providing support and training for Pointwise's meshing products. Mr. Gantt has specific experience in multi-block structured meshing for both viscous and inviscid analysis. His responsibilities include developing and delivering comprehensive training materials, supporting Pointwise's international distributors and providing general technical support and documentation. Mr. Gantt previously performed CFD meshing and analysis at Lockheed Martin while working on the JSF, F-22, F-16 and NASP programs. He earned a Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering, Cooperative Plan Degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1987.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing engineering analysts today – mesh generation for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The company’s Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers, such as ANSYS FLUENT, STAR-CCM+,  ANSYS CFX and OpenFOAM as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows (Intel and AMD), Linux (Intel and AMD), and Mac, and has a scripting language, Glyph, that can automate CFD meshing. Large manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide rely on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution.
