Pointwise Engineer to Speak on Meshing at OpenFOAM Workshop

FORT WORTH, TX (1 March 2011)—Dr. Chris Sideroff will speak about multi-block structured meshing and preprocessing for OpenFOAM® turbomachinery analysis at the 6th OpenFOAM Workshop at Pennsylvania State University on 13-16 June.

He will discuss multi-block structured  meshing of a high-stagger angle axial rotor, grid topology strategies, techniques for modeling advanced features such as fillets and tip gaps, and mesh quality analysis. Mesh transformations, creation of face and cell zones and general grid interface setup, and steps used to prepare turbomachinery cases for OpenFOAM analysis and adding swirl also will be explained.

Dr. Sideroff, Pointwise sales engineer, earned his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at Syracuse University in the area of personal microenvironment analysis. He used Gridgen for his graduate research and is an expert in Pointwise.

Pointwise is a sponsor of the workshop. For more information, see www.openfoamworkshop.org.
