Announcements Pointwise will present the second in the Meshing Forensics webinar series, Overcoming Common Structured Gridding Pitfalls, on 20 June at 10 a.m. CDT.

Our last meshing forensics webinar focused on issues typically encountered when working with solid models and unstructured meshes. This webinar focuses on road blocks commonly seen when working on structured grids.

The webinar will be hosted by Erick Gantt. Carolyn Dear Woeber will answer questions.

The webinar will demonstrate how to solve challenges such as

  • I can’t assemble my structured domain or block.

  • Some connector distributions are not updating.

  • This domain does not have the database shape.

  • I wish I could find the problem cells my solver reports.

Mr. Gantt, Pointwise engineering specialist, has more than 15 years experience in providing support and training for Pointwise's meshing products. Mr. Gantt has specific experience in multi-block structured meshing for both viscous and inviscid analysis. His responsibilities include developing and delivering comprehensive training materials, supporting Pointwise's international distributors and providing general technical support and documentation.

Mr. Gantt previously performed CFD meshing and analysis at Lockheed Martin while working on the JSF, F-22, F-16 and NASP programs. He earned a Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering, Cooperative Plan Degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1987.

Mrs. Woeber has more than 10 years’ experience in mesh generation for a range of application areas, with a specialty in unstructured viscous mesh generation.
