Case Study Shows How CFD Meshing Time Can Be Reduced by 90 Percent

Pointwise has published the case study, “Automatic Generation of High-Quality Meshes Using Pointwise and Glyph” which details how Glyph scripts integrated with Pointwise can reduce meshing time from up to 15 hours to one or two and time spent on manual input from 12 hours to a few minutes.

The case study is based on a project that was commissioned by the U.S. Air Force under a subcontract from Bob Haimes, the principal investigator of the AFRL CAPS program, to allow Pointwise to automatically generate high-quality for any Engineering Sketch Pad (ESP) created geometry.

Utilizing Glyph scripts integrated with the latest version of Pointwise for a typical aircraft geometry, not only reduces meshing time but the automation also ensures a more consistent application of best practices for higher quality results.
