Survey Launched on Mesh Types and Sizes Used for CFD

News Pointwise has launched a survey of the CFD market to assess the relative popularity of mesh types and sizes with a goal of assessing where the industry is headed in terms of flow solver and meshing technology.

"I remember in the 1980s that CFD meshes were virtually all multi-block, structured hexahedra," said John Chawner, Pointwise’s president. "Today, a wide variety of mesh types, each with their own relative advantages, serves an even wider variety of flow solver technology. This survey is an attempt to discover where the technology is headed and seek any points of convergence."

The 5-minute survey seeks input from CFD users about their use of structured, unstructured, and hybrid mesh topologies; their flow solver’s discretization scheme; their use of 2D, overset, and high-order meshes; and the typical number of cells in their CFD meshes. The survey is hosted on Survey Monkey at https://ptwi.se/2rjTEmJ.

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.
