Optimal fluid flow performance is becoming increasingly important for the design of automobiles and automotive components. ENGYS combined high-quality unstructured mesh generation for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) from Pointwise with Helyx Adjoint to provide efficient and effective topology optimization of automotive components. The high-quality unstructured meshing in Pointwise was key to enabling the required stability of the CFD solutions as an integral part of the fully automated performance-driven design process. This case study illustrates the approach and its application to two automotive components for performance-driven design optimization to meet target performance objectives.

Read the case study:

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.

ENGYS was founded by a group of highly experienced engineers and CFD developers with the objective of exploiting open-source technologies within the ambit of numerical simulation software and computer-aided engineering (CAE). ENGYS offers a comprehensive range of customer-driven CFD products and services for enterprise engineering. The ENGYS mission is to leverage open-source technologies to deliver highly innovative, cost-effective CFD software solutions for enterprise to a global client base without compromising on quality or scope of service.
