Pointwise Mesh Generation Software Announced for CFD

Pointwise is the next generation meshing software for CFD from Pointwise, Inc. and has been in production use for more than a year. The marquee feature in the software's second major update provides a suite of tools for mesh quality interrogation and monitoring. The user can apply techniques like drag-and-drop cutting planes, and probing individual mesh cells to gain detailed insight into the suitability of the mesh according to 25 metric functions. Additionally, there is a new capability for automated and proactive mesh quality monitoring, providing the user with a top-down, global view of mesh quality.

"Mesh quality has always been a hallmark of Pointwise's mesh generation software. We're happy to deliver to our customers an updated suite of mesh quality evaluation tools in the latest release of Pointwise," said John Chawner, Pointwise president. "The new feature for automated monitoring of the mesh's quality - called Rules - will make it easier than ever for users to ensure their grids meet their quality requirements."

The new release of Pointwise, Version 16.02, includes many other new features, such as 20 new native CAE solver interfaces, including OpenFOAMC; more geometry modeling capability, such as Coons patches, sweep surfaces, and fillets; two-dimensional grids, and several Gridgen compatibility tools to further aid in the transition to Pointwise's new interface. A complete list of new features is available on Pointwise's Web site.

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

More information about Gridgen and Pointwise is available at pointwise.com.
