Harpoon is already well established within the commercial sector and is currently in use at a large number of market leading companies in the automotive, industrial and aerospace sectors as well as university research groups.
“It is so refreshing to have a meshing tool that is so fast to use”, says Dr Neil Bressloff, Lecturer, MSc Course Co-ordinator, Computational Engineering Design, Southampton University.
The decision to move to the academic licensing option was down to demand among the students, researchers and lecturers. “Early experience of using Harpoon has been extremely encouraging, both in terms of mesh quality and speed of mesh generation”, explains Bressloff.
“We have been using Harpoon for both internal and external flow domains in biofluid and aerodynamic applications, and we are finding it invaluable in systematic design studies, in which it is necessary to generate high quality meshes, quickly and automatically”.
In an increasingly simulation focused world we are confident that this collaboration between Sharc and Southampton University will help to produce innovative engineers and scientists for the future.
The University of Southampton is a leading UK teaching and research institution with a global reputation for leading-edge research and scholarship. The University has around 20,000 students and nearly 5,000 staff.
