Learn how to generate and examine a hex-core mesh to improve solution accuracy

Watch the two-part webinar to learn about the marquee features in Pointwise V18.3. Our latest release includes the ability to use regular hexahedral cells, instead of unstructured tetrahedral cells, to fill the space between the final T-Rex (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion) front and the farfield topology. Use of regular hexahedra in the mesh can improve the CFD flow solver’s rate of convergence and accuracy of the solution. But the new features do not stop there; Pointwise V18.3 also offers a redesigned Examine command focused on ease of use. The most commonly used features of Examine are now located in the first tab of the command, and the other tabs have been reorganized and simplified. 

New Features in Pointwise V18.3: Voxel Farfield Block

In this video, we demonstrate how to create a voxel farfield block composed of near-wall anisotropic prisms and hexahedra generated by the T-Rex algorithm and regular hexahedra (voxel cells) filling up the space between the near-wall layer and the outer boundary. Discover the following:

  • Why would you create a voxel farfield block?
  • How can you create a voxel farfield block?
  • How does the voxel algorithm work?
  • What happens if you add sources to your voxel farfield block?

New Features in Pointwise V18.3: Voxel Mesher

In this video, we demonstrate how to create an internal voxel block composed of near-wall anisotropic prisms and hexahedra generated by the T-Rex algorithm and regular hexahedra (voxel cells) filling up the space between the near-wall layers. Discover the following:

  • Why would you create an internal voxel block?
  • How can you create an internal voxel block?
  • How does the voxel algorithm work?
