Survey Launched on Mesh Types and Sizes Used for CFD
Posted Mon December 30, 2019 @11:38AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Pointwise has launched a survey of the CFD market to assess the relative popularity of mesh types and sizes with a goal of assessing where the industry is headed in terms of flow solver and meshing technology.

"I remember in the 1980s that CFD meshes were virtually all multi-block, structured hexahedra," said John Chawner, Pointwise’s president. "Today, a wide variety of mesh types, each with their own relative advantages, serves an even wider variety of flow solver technology. This survey is an attempt to discover where the technology is headed and seek any points of convergence."
