Announcements Pointwise and the SU2 team at Stanford University will present a workshop 29-30 September that will walk attendees through the end-to-end meshing, analysis and design process in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) using Stanford’s open source CFD code, SU2.

Sponsor CFD Review

Participants may attend the workshop through GoToWebinar or in person at room 450 of the Durand Building on the Stanford campus.

To register, go to http://ptwi.se/1s2R8Ig. Registration is required.

The first day’s session will be from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PDT. The second day will begin at 9 a.m., ending at 2 p.m. PDT. An agenda is available here: http://su2.stanford.edu/index.html.

The SU2 suite is an open-source collection of C++ based software tools for performing CFD analysis and optimization. The toolset is designed with CFD and aerodynamic shape optimization in mind, but it is extensible to treat arbitrary sets of equations that govern additional physics. SU2 has been used to analyze and design a range of applications.

The first day of the workshop will feature sessions covering the basics of both Pointwise and SU2 and how they can be used in concert to tackle aerodynamic shape design problems. Travis Carrigan will demonstrate Pointwise capabilities.

The second day will bring sessions on a number of advanced features, including tutorials on implementing new features in the SU2 codebase, how to generate boundary layer resolved meshes with T-Rex (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion) in Pointwise and how to locate problems in grid quality prior to export and how to use Glyph scripting to automate meshing tasks.

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.
