Latest Pointwise Release Includes 5X Faster Surface Meshing

News The latest release of Pointwise’s computational fluid dynamics (CFD) mesh generation software accelerates its surface meshing process by up to a factor of five on benchmark grids.

"'Accelerate' is one of our three main development thrusts," said John Chawner, Pointwise’s president. "Anything we can do to speed-up the software improves the user’s experience and shrinks the time required to generate a CFD mesh."

The speed-up targets multi-core desktop systems. Meshing B-Rep NURBS geometry models now use multi-threading.

Pointwise V18.3 R2 also extends hex-core meshing, introduced in the software’s previous release, to imprint the hex-core cell topology onto symmetry planes. In addition, high-order mesh curving now supports periodicity making high-order meshes much more suitable for turbomachinery applications.

The surface meshes (gray) on NASA’s Common Research Model were generated using the new, faster surface meshing. The cut through the hex-core volume mesh shows multiple levels of mesh refinement (colors indicate cell volume). The cyan mesh illustrates how the hex-core mesh topology is imprinted onto the symmetry plane.
