News Pointwise engineers Carolyn Woeber, Erick Gantt, and Nick Wyman were presented with the AIAA Meshing, Visualization, and Computational Environments Best Paper award at the 2018 AIAA Science and Technology Forum and Exposition (AIAA SciTech Forum) in Kissimmee, Florida on 9 January 2018.

Their paper, AIAA 2017-0363, Mesh Generation for the NASA High Lift Common Research Model (HL-CRM), described their efforts in generating different styles of computational meshes in support of the 1st AIAA Geometry and Mesh Generation Workshop.

Sponsor CFD Review

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 -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.
