► Branch Technology Team Wins Pointwise Meshy Award
  23 Sep, 2016 

FORT WORTH, TX (22 September 2016) - Dr. C. Bruce Hilbert and Melody Rees of Branch Technology have been named recipients of the Pointwise Meshy Award for their 3-D structured mesh of a pavilion. Their team at Branch Technology: Platt Boyd, Chris Weller, Marc Simons, Tony Disanto, Melody Rees and Dr. Hilbert brought to 3-D life the winning 3-D structure mesh. The pavilion is on view at Cheekwood Gardens in Nashville, Tennessee. Dr. Hilbert was awarded the Meshy Award trophy and Melody Reese and his name were added to those of the previous winners on the trophy kept at Pointwise headquarters.

Additionally, the mesh was featured on T-shirts given to attendees at the Pointwise User Group Meeting 2016, where the winning mesh was announced.

The Meshy Award recognizes the most outstanding mesh generated using Pointwise. Entries are judged on visual appeal, originality and uniqueness.

Entries are showcased in a photo album on Pointwise's Facebook page.

“In years past, Meshy Award winners have demonstrated a strong mastery of the meshing tools available in Pointwise as well as a deep understanding of the complex fluid physics the mesh attempts to resolve,” said Dr. John Steinbrenner, vice president of research and development at Pointwise. “This year’s winner, Dr. Bruce Hilbert of Branch Technologies, offers a mesh designed ultimately for aesthetic reasons. His multi-block structured mesh served as a demonstrator for a large-scale 3-D printing process, the result of which resides as public art at Cheekwood Gardens in Nashville, Tennessee. Congratulations to Dr. Hilbert on his innovative application of a computational mesh.”

Dr. Bruce Hilbert is currently the primary computational researcher at Branch Technology, Inc., a Chattanooga, Tennessee based startup that has developed the largest freeform 3-D printer in the world. He earned his Doctor of Philosophy in computational engineering from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga under the tutelage of Pointwise's own Dr. Steve Karman. Bruce was previously a research associate at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga SimCenter and was the primary grid generator there for almost six years, working on traditional aircraft, turbomachinery, watercraft, fuel cells, waveguides and other projects. His doctoral research was in the field of tetrahedral meshing and he is currently researching grid sequencing for Branch's 3-D printing process.

Melody Rees is an architectural designer with an expertise in digital fabrication and computational design. She is a former employee of Gensler New York with a graduate degree from University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design. Melody is currently lead designer and project manager for Branch Technology.

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.

► New CAESES Release 4.1.2
  21 Sep, 2016 

FRIENDSHIP SYSTEMS has released version 4.1.2 of its Upfront modeling and optimization software CAESES and CAESES Free.

The new version comes with improved methods for the parametric optimization with Adjoint CFD, where various commercial and non-commercial CFD packages are supported now. There is also a new export available for a tighter connection to the simulation software CONVERGE. For the daily work with CAESES, the best design candidates of a design study or an optimization get displayed now with new icons, and Pareto frontiers are automatically visualized in the charts.

► Free Webinar: Increasing CFD Simulation Throughput for Real, Complete Pump Systems
  19 Sep, 2016 

Germany, September 29, 2016

By participating in this webinar, you will gain a greater understanding of how to: *Simulate complex flow behavior in real, complete pump systems by using 3-D CAD geometry as-is – without needing to simplify your systems and introduce approximations which reduce the accuracy of your simulation results. * Get more simulation throughput by avoiding the common bottleneck associated with meshing complex pump geometry. * Rapidly set up and perform simulation-based design space exploration for your pump systems.

Prof. Laszlo Fuchs, KTH, Stockholm, Sweden

Multiphase Flows Rationale

The simultaneous presence of several different phases in external or internal flows such as gas, liquid and solid is found in daily life, environment and numerous industrial processes. These types of flows are termed multiphase flows, which may exist in different forms depending on the phase distribution. Examples are gas-liquid transportation, crude oil recovery, circulating fluidized beds, sediment transport in rivers, pollutant transport in the atmosphere, cloud formation, fuel injection in engines, bubble column reactors and spray for food processing, to name only a few. As a result of the interaction between the different phases such flows are rather complicated and very difficult to describe theoretically. For the design and optimisation of such multiphase systems a detailed understanding of the interfacial transport phenomena is essential.

This course is rather unique as it is one of few in the community that is specifically designed to deliver, a) a best practice guidance and b) the latest trends, in CFD for dispersed multi-phase flows. The course appeals to researchers and engineers involved in projects requiring CFD for (wall-bounded) turbulent dispersed multi-phase flows with bubbles, drops or particles.

Moreover, delegates are offered the opportunity to present their work via 10 minute presentations , thereafter, the lecturers can offer prospective solution.. Registration is required
