FORT WORTH, TX (23 April 2013)—Pointwise will present “Meshing Forensics: How to Recover When Things Go Wrong,” a free webinar, at 10 a.m. (CDT) on 8 May. The course will show seasoned veterans and new users of Pointwise what to do when they encounter an unexpected situation while creating a mesh.

Using a series of application-based examples, techniques will be demonstrated showing how to generate high quality grids when things take a turn for the worse. For more information or to register, go to

The hour-long webinar will solve the following mysteries: • I’m unable to split my model. • I can’t find all the holes in my geometry. • That domain doesn’t look quite right. • That domain just turned green. • My unstructured block won’t initialize.

The webinar will be presented by Travis Carrigan, Pointwise senior engineer, and Carolyn Dear Woeber, manager of support and consulting.

Mr. Carrigan joined Pointwise as a senior engineer after completing his M.S. in aerospace engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington in May 2011. He interned at Pointwise beginning May 2008, producing demonstration and application videos and working in technical support, doing grid projects and quality assurance testing. He received his B.S. in aerospace engineering in 2009 from UTA.

Mrs. Woeber has more than 10 years’ experience in mesh generation for a range of application areas, with a specialty in unstructured viscous mesh generation. At Pointwise, she is manager of the Support and Consulting Team, overseeing customer support, quality assurance, training, consulting and documentation. Before joining Pointwise, she was a member of the NSF Engineering Research Center’s Computational Simulation and Design Center at Mississippi State University, where she earned a B.S. and an M.S. in aerospace engineering in 2000 and 2004.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing engineering analysts today – mesh generation for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The company’s Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers, such as ANSYS FLUENT, STAR-CCM+, ANSYS CFX and OpenFOAM 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.
