[Pointwise] unstructured mesh domain – question
4 Attachment(s)

I’ve problem with creation of unstructured mesh (picture 1, 1a). In this case the domain is flat. This domain is a part of cylinder and it should looks like a domain in picture 2, 2a, (structural mesh). Each curve connector has 20 “connections” and straight connector is divided on 176 points (I’ve used dimension option).
What should I do to create an unstructured domain on a cylindrical part?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards

James_ you will need to create a cylindrical database surface first, then create the unstructured domain on that surface so it takes the shape you desire.

Thank you very much Chris:)

I am still not oriented well in Pointwise software and that is the reason of my basic problems

thanks for your help

You will want to do a projection onto your database

How could I create a curvy database? Could I do it inside pointwise or do I need to use CAD utilities and than transfer it into pointwise?

You can do it inside pointwise. You can create databases using the create-sweep or create-revolve features.
