Pointwise and the Evolution of Faster, Easier, More Reliable Automated Meshing
Posted Wednesday May 22 at 4:48pm
In the case study, Pointwise and the Evolution of Faster, Easier, More Reliable Automated Meshing, learn more about user-independent automated meshing and take a look at the latest meshing technologies under development at Pointwise.

Generating high-quality automated meshes for CFD analysis has been an industry goal for more than 30 years. Meshing solution developers have spent much of those years trying to create user-independent solutions, only to be stymied by the inherent complexities of geometry models, the mesh, and the CFD solution.

Balancing Meshing Time with Solution Accuracy
Posted Tuesday April 9 at 10:56am
In 1963, Craig Breedlove set the world land-speed record in the Spirit of America, a record that he would later reclaim several more times in the next two years. Fifty years later, Breedlove has decided that it is time to bring the title back to America. In a new team led by Breedlove, the Spirit of America is being revived with the goal of once again claiming a new world record for land-speed vehicles.

Historically, land-speed vehicles were shaped by rule of thumb aerodynamics. However in the 50 years since the first turbojet vehicle officially set a land-speed record, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has matured to a point where it can be inexpensively used to help simulate performance characteristics on such vehicles.

CFD Used to Develop Propeller With Reduced Underwater Radiated Noise
Posted Wednesday April 3 at 2:48am
Large cargo ships routinely have Underwater Radiated Noise (URN) signatures from their propellers of 150dB+, louder than jet engine take-off noise. Oscar Marine has developed a new propeller design which reduces URN by between to 17dB and 21dB (an over 100 times reduction in noise power) in the frequency range most damaging to marine fauna.
