However, ensuring that the computed solutions are sufficiently accurate with respect to the physical system being modeled is often left to the practitioner to determine. Even for relatively standard simulations, questions often arise as to the robustness with which CFD methods can accurately compute outputs of interest. Numerical errors can often be directly traced to the configuration of the underlying mesh and orientation of individual and neighboring cells used in calculating a solution. Error estimation and adaptive methods are critical ingredients to improve the reliability of computational simulations efficiently and reliably.
In this webinar, we demonstrate some recommended best meshing practices in Pointwise and demonstrate adjoint-based mesh adaptation using NASA Langley's FUN3D solver to accurately compute the flow over an ONERA M6 wing.
