Getting the quality of a structured grid in an unstructured mesh on a thin surface just became considerably easier. Now the two grids can be linked so that changes in the mesh topology or changes to the distribution of grid points will no longer destroy their structured nature. That regular, structured nature will persist in the unstructured mesh as you move forward with your meshing project.
Discover how to:
- Create an unstructured surface mesh from an existing structured surface grid.
- Link those two surface meshes together for persistent cell topology.
- Automatically substitute the new unstructured surface mesh for its linked partner in a block
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® and CFX®, 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. www.pointwise.com
