The latest release of Pointwise’s computational fluid dynamics (CFD) mesh generation software (V18.3 R2) accelerates its surface meshing process by up to a factor of five on benchmark grids, according to the company.
“'Accelerate' is one of our three main development thrusts,” said John Chawner, Pointwise’s president. “Anything we can do to speed-up the software improves the user’s experience and shrinks the time required to generate a CFD mesh.”
The speed-up targets multi-core desktop systems. Meshing B-Rep NURBS geometry models now use multi-threading.
Pointwise V18.3 R2 also extends hex-core meshing, introduced in the software’s previous release, to imprint the hex-core cell topology onto symmetry planes. In addition, high-order mesh curving now supports periodicity making high-order meshes much more suitable for turbomachinery applications, the company says.
