Pointwise Used to Improve Existing Mesh Adaptation Solutions
Posted Monday September 25 at 11:46pm

In the webinar, Towards Mesh Adaptation with Pointwise, we will introduce adaptation in Pointwise and how this upcoming feature is used to improve upon existing mesh adaptation solutions. Join us for the webinar on 3 October at 10 a.m. CT (UTC -5)

Mesh adaptation is a common technique employed to help improve engineering simulation efficiency. In the field of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), unstructured mesh adaptation has been used to substantially reduce the mesh size needed to reach a desired solution accuracy.

Mesh adaptation enables significant improvements in processing time, memory requirements, and storage needed.

Error estimates based on the flow solution can detect physical phenomena and give local target mesh lengths needed to capture their behavior. Meshes are then automatically adapted in critical regions without any a priori knowledge of the solution. However, without access to the underlying CAD data, adaptation is limited only to improving off-body grid resolution. Given that access to CAD is available directly within Pointwise, and added or moved grid points can be reprojected onto the underlying geometry during adaptation, which offers a unique advantage over most off-body mesh adaptation solutions.
