Pointwise's meshing software has been applied to virtually every major military aircraft and spacecraft in the last 30 years including the F-16, F-15, F-18, F-22, F-35, F-117, B-2, E-2C, P-3C, Space Shuttle, Space Station and more.
Efficient design, construction, and operation of wind farms require accurate CFD simulations. Pointwise’s mesh generation provides the foundation for those accurate simulations, from the individual blades to entire wind farm.
Whether you're engaged in CFD to refine an existing design, doing parametric analysis for design of a new vehicle, or researching concepts for next generation vehicles, Pointwise provides all your mesh generation capabilities.
Marine and hydrodynamic applications of CFD are a field where Pointwise's meshing software has a long history. From racing yachts to cargo ships to submarines, Pointwise supports the accurate meshing required.
Industrial equipment, musical instruments, sporting goods – anything around or through which a fluid flows can be optimized through simulation. Accurate simulations require a mesh generator like Pointwise to handle the non-traditional.
Structured grid generation methods have been central to Pointwise since we began work on them in 1984. They are well-suited for applications that require 100% hexahedral, flow-aligned cells such as external aerodynamics, turbomachinery and more.
Overset mesh generation trades topology for overlap as a means of handling complex and moving geometry. Through its integration with overset grid assembly software, Pointwise provides all the tools you need to ensure accurate solution in your overset grids.
Preparation of geometry models for meshing is essential to all mesh types. Pointwise supports both parametric (NURBS) and faceted (STL) geometry, imports a variety of native and neutral formats and offers two techniques for meshing over gaps; fault tolerant meshing and solid meshing.
In order for mesh generation to be an integral component of your CFD process, you need meshing software that can be customized and proceduralized. Pointwise’s Glyph scripting language gives you the ability to automate all or parts of the meshing process with macros and templates.
From geometry model import to flow solver export, Pointwise provides tools for every step of the meshing process including mesh editing down to the individual grid point to global mesh metric evaluation. You can even customize the software by adding your own file readers and writers using the plugin API.
