News Pointwise has been awarded a 2-year, $1.2 million contract from the U.S. Air Force Materiel Command, Arnold Engineering Development Complex for continued enhancement and maturation of the company’s overset grid assembly feature suite and related technologies.

This new award, a Commercialization Readiness Program (CRP) extension to Pointwise’s recently completed Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contract, gives Pointwise’s Applied Research team the opportunity to develop and enhance techniques ranging from overset grid inspection and remediation, to near-body viscous layer and automated off-body meshing.

“This award validates our previous efforts in overset grid generation and assembly and will allow us to support the U.S. Air Force’s need for a mission-ready Simulation & Modeling tool.” Nick Wyman, Director of Applied Research, Pointwise said. “The software developed during this project will provide analysis engineers with automated tools leading to significant reduction in overset mesh generation workload.”

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) 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®, OpenFOAM, and SU2 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.
