“When customers began requesting a native AcuSolve interface, it was a pleasure to collaborate with a leading CFD software provider such as ACUSIM,” said John Chawner, Pointwise’s president. “This fulfills our customers’ needs while taking our partnership with ACUSIM to the next level.”

“The new, native AcuSolve interface is a real advantage for keeping our CFD process simple and efficient,” said beta tester Dr. L. Joel Peltier, senior engineering specialist at Bechtel National. “Until recently, Pointwise did not have a native AcuSolve interface, requiring us to use alternative export formats with intermediate processing to import into that code.

“Bechtel uses a number of flow solvers to service large-scale industrial projects for government and for the private sector. Streamlining the process from grid generation through flow solution to post-processing is important to meet tight time constraints,” Dr. Peltier said.

“I am quite pleased by having a native AcuSolve plugin in Pointwise, allowing our joint users to seamlessly go from Pointwise meshes to AcuSolve flow solutions,” said Dr. Farzin Shakib, CEO of ACUSIM Software. “This is a part of ACUSIM’s strategy and commitment to provide more and more interoperable tools between AcuSolve and other prominent third party packages used in CFD.”

The new release of Pointwise, Version 16.02 R3, also includes a native interface to NASA’s USM3D CFD software.
