This workshop grew out of other AIAA CFD-related workshops where it was noticed that geometry and meshing required a significant effort and played a large part in whether analyses converged and were accurate. The workshop objectives were to assess the state-of-the-art in geometry preprocessing and mesh generation for aerospace systems, identify and understand areas needing improvement, and document best practices.|
Woeber, Gantt, and Wyman generated unstructured tetrahedral, hybrid, hybrid-overset, and high-order meshes for the workshop and documented the approaches they used in the award-winning technical paper. A summary of their work is also available at http://www.pointwise.com/theconnector/2017-Q1/Mesh -Generation-NASA-High-Lift-Common-Research-Model.shtml.
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, overset and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers such as ANSYS FLUENT®, STAR-CCM+®, OpenFOAM®, and SU2 as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac, and has a scripting language, Glyph, that can automate CFD meshing. Manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide have relied on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution since 1994.
