A range of essential features
Pointwise is a versatile tool that plays a pivotal role in the world of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) by simplifying and optimizing the meshing process.
For CFD engineers this software offers features that contribute to improving CFD simulations and reducing time-to-results.
Control on Local Mesh Refinement
Pointwise enables you to concentrate computational resources where they matter most. In CFD, this translates into capturing fine details and gradients in the flow field accurately. With Pointwise, you have infinite control on your local refinements and boundary layer meshing. This level of detail is crucial for predicting aerodynamic or hydrodynamic behavior with accuracy.
Complex Geometries Meshing
Pointwise's prowess lies in its ability to handle complex geometries seamlessly. It streamlines the process of creating meshes that accurately represent the geometry, ensuring that your Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations are not only reliable but also computationally efficient.
Mesh Quality Examination
Mesh quality is paramount in CFD, and Pointwise doesn't disappoint. It includes a multitude of examination parameters for Mesh Quality Assessment, allowing you to identify and rectify any issues in your mesh. High-quality meshes lead to more stable CFD results, a fundamental requirement for any simulation.
Parallel Processing is a must-have for handling large and complex geometries. Pointwise supports parallel processing, making it feasible to mesh substantial models efficiently. This capability is a time-saver, contributing to faster time-to-results, which is invaluable in time-sensitive engineering projects.
Automated Mesh Generation
Automated Mesh Generation is one of Pointwise's standout features. It automates the often complex task of generating meshes for intricate geometries. This is particularly beneficial for CFD engineers as it significantly reduces the manual effort required. Whether you're working with structured or unstructured grids, Pointwise's automation speeds up the process and allows you to focus on the physics of the problem rather than the mesh.
