Application The Department of Engineering Cybernetics at Norwegian University of Science and Technology uses Pointwise to help solve the problem of icing on drones in this case study, How to Mesh a Frozen Drone.

Icing is a severe hazard that significantly limits the usage of autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods are a vital tool for understanding the effects of icing on UAVs.

One of the most challenging tasks for the simulation is the generation of high-quality meshes of complex ice shapes. Find out how Pointwise met the challenge and decreased the mesh creation time with its automation.

Read the case study, “How to Mesh a Frozen Drone.”

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.

neptech, founded in 2018, is the Scandinavian distributor of Pointwise grid generation and preprocessing software for computational fluid dynamics. neptech provides technical support and training for Pointwise users and general CFD consulting services.
