FORT WORTH, TX (20 August 2012)—Pointwise announces the latest release of its Pointwise computational fluid dynamics (CFD) meshing software. This update includes new native grid and boundary condition export for Stanford’s SU², Scientific Simulations’ NSU3D, and W.R. Davis’ ShipIR.
“We’ve received lots of great feedback from customers since the launch of Pointwise Version 17.0 and even though R2 is a minor release, we were able to address some of their needs now instead of waiting for the next major release,” said John Chawner, Pointwise’s president.
“Supporting new native interfaces is extremely important. SU² is a new, yet already popular open-source CFD code and NSU3D is the well-respected aerospace code from Prof. Dimitri Mavriplis. ShipIR takes us into a new application area – thermal signature analysis.”
Also included in Pointwise Version 17.0 R2 are some smaller features and many resolved issues.
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 scripting languages that can automate CFD meshing. Large manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide rely on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution.
