Grid Generation After more than 4 calendar years and over 25,000 person hours of development time, Pointwise, Inc. today released its next generation meshing software, named Pointwise.

Pointwise cuts the time to generate high-quality CFD meshes through its flat, intuitive graphical interface that gives rapid access to the powerful meshing techniques Pointwise, Inc. engineers have developed over the last 23 years. In addition, it provides shortcuts through the meshing process like a new automated assembly procedure that builds three-dimensional volume grids from a jumble of grid components with a simple click of a button. Pointwise's usability is further enhanced by a multiple-level undo and redo capability with a user configurable number of levels.

Application by Douglas Clark

Oil spills and man made pollutants leap to mind at the mention of endangered sea life and toppled ecosystems, but unknown to most laypeople, an everyday event in the world of maritime transport is actually among the most significant threats to marine ecology today.

Without any of the widespread attention given to a toxic spill, cargo ships and other vessels move from port to port around the world and often quietly introduce non-indigenous species that can wreak havoc in their new habitats.
