Let’s Talk Meshing encourages discussion about various meshing topics through interactive forums, webinars, videos, and live events.

The relative merits of hexahedral versus tetrahedral elements on cell-centered finite volume simulations will be discussed by Dr. John Rhoads, who made the meshes, with special attention given to the sources and mitigation of numerical diffusion. The basic motivation for using hexahedral cells will be explained and several topologies will be introduced that improve the resulting cell quality for realistic, irregularly shaped regions. Dr. Rhoads also will include tips for conceptualizing candidate topologies and explain several tools within Pointwise and some Glyph scripts designed to expedite the process of generating topologies in 2-D and 3-D. Pointwise Senior Engineer Travis Carrigan also will participate in the question-and-answer portion of the event.

Individuals may go to www.pointwise.com/videos to participate. Links to download the scripts used in creating the mesh will be found in the synopsis of the video on YouTube when the forum begins.

Those who want to submit questions can do so in three ways:

  • YouTube – Go to www.pointwise.com/videos at the start of the event to be directed to the video. Enter questions in the comments section.
  • Twitter – Use the #LetsTalkMeshing hashtag to participate in a live streaming conversation utilizing Twitter.
  • Email – Questions may be emailed to letstalk@pointwise.com.
  • Please note that YouTube and Twitter require users to have an account with their respective services.

    Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) practitioners today – reliably generating high-fidelity meshes. 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.
