Announcements Pointwise, Inc. will present a free webinar Structured Meshing for Low-Speed Ship Maneuvering Simulations at 11 a.m. CDT on 22 Aug.

The accuracy and reduced cell count provided by structured meshes are nearly a prerequisite for ship resistance prediction for naval vessels because of free-surface effects and very high Reynolds numbers.

The webinar will demonstrate how to use Pointwise software to create a structured mesh suitable for low Froude number ship resistance predictions on the U.S. Navy Surface Combatant DTMB 5415 ship hull.

Techniques presented will include how to

  • Quickly create structured surfaces meshes on models and quilts

  • Create smooth, orthogonal boundary layer meshes with hyperbolic extrusion

  • Construct the farfield block topology with domain and block auto-assembly

  • Improve geometric accuracy and mesh quality with the elliptic smoother

To register for the hour-long webinar, go to http://www.pointwise.com/webinar/.

Presenters will be Dr. Chris Sideroff and Travis Carrigan, technical sales engineers.

Dr. Sideroff joined Pointwise in September 2007 after working as a petroleum engineer for the NATCO Group, a CAD engineer for ARV Development, and a computer technician for Harddata Ltd. Dr. Sideroff earned both a B.S. and M.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Alberta in 2000 and 2003. He earned a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Syracuse University in 2009.

Mr. Carrigan joined Pointwise as a technical sales engineer after completing his M.S. in aerospace engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington in May 2011. He interned at Pointwise beginning May 2008, producing demonstration and application videos and working in technical support, doing grid projects and quality assurance testing. He received his B.S. in aerospace engineering in 2009 from UTA.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing engineering analysts today – mesh generation for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The company’s Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers, such as ANSYS FLUENT, STAR-CCM+, ANSYS CFX and OpenFOAM as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows (Intel and AMD), Linux (Intel and AMD), and Mac, and has scripting languages that can automate CFD meshing. Large manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide rely on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution.
