While a large contingent of Fidelity CFD team members are at the AIAA SciTech Forum this week, let's take a look back at what happened here last week. This post's featured image is a blast from the past of flow through a valve. (Image created in FieldView.)
T-Rex is an advanced and automated hybrid mesh generation method. T-Rex generates hybrid meshes that resolve boundary layers, wakes, and other phenomena in viscous flows by extruding layers of high-quality, high-aspect ratio tetrahedra that can be post-processed into stacks of prisms. The algorithm includes tools for optimizing cell quality and avoiding collisions of adjacent layers of cells. Read more.
The big, powerful features such as unstructured quadrilateral surface meshing, unstructured hexahedral layer extrusion in the anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion (T-Rex) technique, and tetrahedral mesh clustering sources often overshadow the small yet formidable features in Fidelity Pointwise. The top five small features for easy meshing in Fidelity Pointwise are described. Read more.
