News Pointwise announces the addition of Dr. Steve L. Karman Jr., formerly of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga SimCenter, to its Applied Research Team.

"The addition of Dr. Karman to our Applied Research Team is a major coup for Pointwise," said Dr. John Steinbrenner, Pointwise’s vice president of research and development. "I have known Steve for more than 30 years, having spent several years working collaboratively with him at the start of our respective careers."

“Since that time, we have kept abreast of his many leading-edge contributions to the fields of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and more recently, grid generation. We eagerly await the opportunity to work closely with him again and are excited about how he will impact our mesh generation research and development efforts.”

Dr. Karman earned a B.S. in aerospace engineering in 1980 and a M.Eng. in aerospace engineering in 1982 from Texas A&M University. In 1983 he began working at General Dynamics Fort Worth Division and continued his education, earning a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1991.

Dr. Karman worked at General Dynamics/Lockheed Martin for 20 years in the development and support of CFD tools used by various aircraft programs in the company. Dr. Karman joined the SimCenter at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2003 as a research professor, where he led the development of mesh generation tools. He became a tenured professor in the Graduate School of Computational Engineering in 2012.

Dr. Karman annually taught the introductory course on grid generation and the advanced course on adaptive and dynamic mesh generation. He is an associate fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and has served as chairman of the Meshing, Visualization and Computational Environments Technical Committee.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing computational fluid dynamics 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.
