At the Chair for Computational Analysis for Technical Systems (CATS) at the RWTH Aachen University, Pointwise is used as the mesh generation tool for various computational fluid dynamics (CFD) applications, such as design and optimization of profile extrusion dies, simulation of blood pumps, fluid structure interaction for colloidal aggregates and aeroelastic simulation of horizontal axis wind turbines. In this article, mesh generation with Pointwise for the wind turbine application is explained.
