Best Meshing Practices from PAW04

Pointwise, Inc. has compiled their recommended meshing strategies developed while creating meshes for the 3rd and 4th AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshops into a case study, “Meshing Strategies for Propulsion Aerodynamics”.

Meshing remains somewhat of an art. Mesh quality can make the difference between success and failure in a CFD project since it has a large influence on both CFD solver convergence and accuracy. Propulsion aerodynamics cases present a number of unique meshing challenges for CFD practitioners from capturing secondary flows in internal inlet passages to appropriately resolving shear layers and mixing phenomena in nozzle exhaust plumes.

The case study includes several meshing techniques and meshing best-practices developed while creating workshop-supplied meshes for the 3rd and 4th AIAA Propulsion Aerodynamics Workshops. These meshing strategies and lessons learned have been collected into this case study to help CFD practitioners learn from experience meshing these types of challenging internal flow problems.

Download the case study today to discover meshing best practices that can be applied across a wide variety of propulsion aerodynamics cases. https://ptwi.se/2AA5gWE
