Pointwise, the choice for CFD meshing, released an on-demand webinar that helps to improve your proficiency with Pointwise by doing a meshing walk-through of a CFD benchmark.
The Potsdam Propeller Test Case (PPTC) is a benchmark case used for assessing the accuracy of existing computer codes and modeling strategies in simulating hydrodynamic propeller performance.
The controllable pitch propeller design was tested at several different conditions and has a wealth of experimental data for CFD validation.
In this webinar, Zach Davis, senior engineer at Pointwise, Inc., walks through creating an unstructured hybrid mesh consisting primarily of hexahedra and tetrahedra for the PPTC geometry while presenting several meshing best-practice guidelines.
