In this video we demonstrate using the Assemble Tolerance metric found under the Examine menu in Pointwise to help identify potential issues with existing quilts and models. It is also useful to help determine the appropriate grid spacing to use near these assembly boundaries in models.

In this video we demonstrate how to use the new Size Field examine metric in Pointwise V18. The size field is a visual representation of the target cell edge lengths in an unstructured block. The best part is that the size field of an empty unstructured block can be examined. Yes, empty! This allows you to get a pretty good sense for what the distribution of cell sizes will be in the final volume mesh even before you initialize your block.

Researchers at Pennsylvania State University’s Applied Research Laboratory share an overview of their ongoing work involving overset grid CFD simulations of an incompressible rotorcraft hub they performed using the overset meshing tools available in Pointwise. Preliminary CFD results show good agreement with empirical rotor hub wake measurements. Pointwise has become an integral part of these researchers' toolset as they continue their investigations into... Read more: http://ptwi.se/2hSAGvZ

In this video we demonstrate how to examine the u,v parameterization of a surface in Pointwise. The u,v examine metric can be used to identify surface discontinuities and poor parameterization that may cause issues while surface meshing.

In this video we highlight using the Smoothness metric under the Examine menu to help assess the amount of turning between adjacent grid points in a multi-block structured mesh.

AIAA SciTech 2017 (formally known as the AIAA Science and Technology Forum and Exposition) will be held in Pointwise's backyard this coming January, just north of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in the city of Grapevine, Texas. Because of the locality, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to meet, mingle, and converse with Pointwise staff including technical papers, the exposition hall, and a reception.

In this video we discuss area and volume cell ratio and how to access these examine metrics. In general, it is best to keep your surface cell area ratios as low as possible to promote a high quality viscous extrusion and ultimately low volume ratios.

In this video we demonstrate how to examine boundary and surface proximity. These metrics allow you to identify and display gaps between database surfaces.
