Solution-Based Mesh Adaptation with Pointwise and ANSYS CFX
Improve CFD simulation efficiency and accuracy using solution adapted meshing
Simulation-driven design relies heavily on high-quality CFD simulation results. Mesh adaptation is an essential tool for controlling discretization error in your simulations. Pointwise provides a solver-independent mesh adaptation method that maintains adherence to geometry. Curious as to how Pointwise mesh adaptation can be applied to your engineering simulation workflow? Nick Wyman and Steve Karman from Pointwise along with Paul Galpin from ISimQ held a Let’s Talk Meshing Live Q&A about mesh adaptation to answer people’s questions on this subject. Watch this webinar to learn how mesh adaptation can help make your CFD process more efficient and accurate.
Discover how to:
- Use mesh adaptation to efficiently resolve a flowfield
- Adapt by locally adding grid points or order elevation
- Enable user independent CFD solutions
Paul Galpin of ISimQ has been one of the main developers and development managers of the TASCflow and ANSYS CFX software; he is a renowned expert in the development of commercial CFD software for over 30 years, in numerical methods, and in rotor-stator interaction algorithms including transient blade row methods and aero-mechanics applications.
Nick Wyman directs Pointwise's research efforts, focusing contracted software development on solving problems faced by our customers. He joined Pointwise in 1998 as a Gridgen developer and became manager of the entire Development Team. He received a B.S. in aerospace engineering and an M.S. in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M University in 1992 and 1994. Before joining Pointwise, he worked for Advanced Scientific Computing (later AEA Technology), performing CFD applications work and developing grid generation software for turbomachinery. Mr. Wyman is an associate fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics
Steve Karman joined Pointwise's Applied Research Team in 2014. He had been a tenured professor in the Graduate School of Computational Engineering, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga since 2012. Dr. Karman, an associate fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, has served as chairman of the Meshing, Visualization and Computational Environments Technical Committee. He earned B.S. and M.Eng. degrees in aerospace engineering from Texas A&M University and a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1991. At General Dynamics/Lockheed Martin, Dr. Karman developed CFD tools in support of the F-16, F-22 and F-35 programs.
