News Pointwise announces the availability of their CFD meshing software, Gridgen Version 15.09, on the Silicon Graphics Prism Deskside workstation.

"The first SGI workstation to which Gridgen was ported was a Model 2400 back in 1987," said John Steinbrenner, Pointwise's Vice President of Research and Development. "We are very excited to continue our 19 year relationship with SGI on their latest workstation, the Prism."

"Gridgen has been available on Linux for 5 years now and it remains our fastest growing platform. The result of combining Linux and SGIís hardware is a platform thatís well suited for Gridgen." Gridgenís port to the Prism was facilitated by the QuickTransit software from Transitive.

"SGI is helping to advance a growing class of CAE engineers and scientists who are moving from proprietary architectures to industry standard technologies that drive value and efficiencies into their CAE workflow," said Stan Posey, SGI manager of business development for CAE applications. "We are delighted in our joint-collaboration with Pointwise as we focus on the availability of Gridgen for the Prism high-performance architecture to further enhance CAE capabilities for our customers."

Other new features released in Gridgen V15.09 include solid modeling, a deformation-based scheme for pyramid cell generation in hybrid meshes, a new native interface to the FrontFlow flow solver, upgraded native interfaces to the FIELDVIEW CFD postprocessor and the Cobalt and STAR-CD flow solvers, and a port to AMD Opteron (Windows and Linux).
