Application By Claudio M. Pita,
Senior Engineer,
Pointwise, Inc.

Last month several Pointwise engineers attended the 24th International Meshing Roundtable (IMR) held in Austin, Texas. We brought two grids generated for two benchmark geometries provided by the IMR steering committee. The grids were made by Carolyn Woeber, Travis Carrigan, and myself. We were pleased to hear that the grids were recognized both for their technical merit and striking visuals – they had won the Meshing Contest award.

Announcements CD-adapco will host Simulating Flow Induced Noise and Vibration for Accurate Modeling on January 19, 2015.

Noise and vibration performance is becoming increasingly important in the design of many products. The noise generated by rotating machines (such as fans, propellers, turbochargers and electric motors), exterior flows (over automobiles, aircraft and launch vehicles) and the transmission of flow-induced noise and vibration through ducts (such as refrigerant lines, mufflers, pipelines, ECS and HVAC systems) can be a nuisance for engineers and customers alike.

Horizontal axis water turbines are a leading contender for commercial deployment of marine hydrokinetic devices due to their simplicity and their similarities to wind turbines. However, the unsteady loading and its impact on system maintenance, fatigue and life-cycle are not well understood and therefore require high fidelity computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Building high quality structured meshes in Pointwise that are capable of capturing the important physics is a critical enabling technology.
