New CFD and Geometry Interfaces in Pointwise Meshing Software

FORT WORTH, TX (8 February 2016) - Pointwise announces the latest release of its meshing software featuring updated native interfaces to computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and geometry codes.

“This new production release of Pointwise includes updated support for the Kestrel CFD solver,” said John Chawner, Pointwise’s president. Kestrel is one software component in the High Performance Computing Modernization Office's (HPCMO) Computational Research and Engineering Acquisition Tool Environment (CREATE) Program. “By upgrading to Kestrel’s AVMesh Revision 1 library we can maintain compatibility with this important CFD tool.”

Pointwise Version 17.3 R5 also includes geometry import and export to the native file format of Pointwise’s geometry kernel and a variety of bug fixes.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) today – reliably generating high-fidelity meshes. The company’s Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers, such as ANSYS Fluent®, STAR-CCM+®, ANSYS CFX®, OpenFOAM, and SU2 as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows (Intel and AMD), Linux (Intel and AMD), and Mac, and has a scripting language, Glyph, that can automate CFD meshing. Large manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide rely on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution.
