Using a series of application-based examples, techniques will be demonstrated showing how to generate high quality grids when things take a turn for the worse.

The hour-long webinar will solve the following mysteries:

  • Iím unable to split my model.
  • I canít find all the holes in my geometry.
  • That domain doesnít look quite right.
  • That domain just turned green.
  • My unstructured block wonít initialize.

The webinar will be presented by Travis Carrigan, Pointwise senior engineer, and Carolyn Dear Woeber, manager of support and consulting.
