Workshop on How to Increase Ship CFD Simulation Accuracy, Efficiency with Pointwise Meshing Flexibility
Increase ship CFD simulation accuracy and efficiency with meshing flexibility. Pointwise generates high-quality, high aspect ratio meshes that are key to CFD efficiency for high Reynolds number marine simulations. Interactive demonstrations and background information will show the how and why of the automated mesh generation process in Pointwise.

This event is free to attend, but registration is required. 
Attendees do not have to be customers of Pointwise.

In the workshop we will conduct live, interactive 
demonstrations of Pointwise meshing the Potsdam Propeller 
and KCS ship hull test cases, and we will present technical 
background information about the how and why of the meshing 
techniques developed and honed with many years of experience 
in Pointwise.

Pointwise has been used for many years for CFD preprocessing 
of ship hulls, propellers and appendages. It reduces the 
number of computational cells needed for marine CFD 
simulations because of its ability to generate high aspect 
ratio cells, critical to resolve high Reynolds number 
boundary layer flows, and the flexibility it provides to use 
different mesh topologies to suit different geometry and 
flow resolution needs. Using fewer cells leads to quicker 
turnaround times of CFD simulations.

Recent work in Pointwise has increasingly automated the mesh 
generation process so mesh generation turnaround times can 
be decreased as well. The T-Rex, anisotropic tetrahedral 
extrusion technique, in particular automatically generates 
layers of regular hexahedral cells to resolve boundary 
layers while conforming to specified spacing, quality, and 
interference specifications. The end result is high-quality, 
high aspect ratio cells generated quickly in an automated
