FORT WORTH, TX – Pointwise releases the case study, “Accurate Performance Predictions for Marine Propellers,” providing benchmark validation for accurate performance of CFD simulation results.

The high demand for improving the accuracy, quality, and credibility of the CFD simulation results, should be assessed by providing a qualitative and intensive comparison with experimental measurement data. The purpose of this benchmark is the validation of the CFD simulation software TCFD® with a mesh created in the meshing software Pointwise® and to compare the results with the measurement data available. The thrust coefficient, torque coefficient, and efficiency were compared to the advance coefficient over eleven operating conditions. In the case study, TCFD accurately modeled the Potsdam propeller across a broad range of operating conditions.

Read the case study:

Pointwise, solving the top problem facing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) today – reliably generating high-fidelity meshes. The company's Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured, overset and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers such as ANSYS FLUENT® and CFX®, STAR-CCM+®, OpenFOAM®, and SU2 as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows, Linux, and Mac, and has a scripting language, Glyph, that can automate CFD meshing. Manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide have relied on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution since 1994.
