In the workshop we will conduct live, interactive 
demonstrations of Pointwise meshing the DrivAer automotive 
test case, 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 has been used for many years in a variety of 
industries. In the automotive industry, Pointwise is well 
suited for cases that demand high accuracy and the 
flexibility to use different mesh topologies to meet varying 
requirements in different parts of the flow domain. Examples 
are external aerodynamics, where automated unstructured 
grids can be used in complex geometry locations, and 
structured grids can be used in the remaining areas for more 
accurate, efficient simulations; and fuel injectors, where 
narrow passages can be automatically resolved with fewer 
cells using Pointwise’s T-Rex technique. 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 high aspect ratio hexahedral cells to 
resolve boundary layers while conforming to specified 
spacing, quality, and interference specifications. The end 
result is high-quality cells generated quickly in an 
automated process.
