Quick High-Quality Structured Meshing for Axial Pumps
Pointwise reduces the time needed for high-fidelity CFD simulation of turbomachinery. In this webinar, we demonstrate the techniques used to create a multiple-block, structured mesh for the DARPA HIREP Axial Pump.
Topics covered in this webinar include
- Stop using block topology as a crutch and use smoothing techniques to achieve high quality.
- Prevent erroneous or incomplete geometries from slowing mesh generation.
- Set aside your fear of fillets and create structured topologies to handle them.
- Reduce solver setup time by applying volume and boundary conditions for your solver.
Chris Sideroff joined Pointwise in September 2007 after working as a petroleum engineer for the NATCO Group, a CAD engineer for ARV Development, and a computer technician for Harddata Ltd. Dr. Sideroff earned both a B.S. and M.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Alberta in 2000 and 2003. He earned a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Syracuse University in 2009, where his dissertation subject was "Detailed Examinations of the Human Micro-Environment by CFD".
