FORT WORTH, TX - Dr. Chris Sideroff will speak about multi-block structured meshing and preprocessing for OpenFOAM® turbomachinery analysis at the 6th OpenFOAM Workshop at Pennsylvania State University on 13-16 June.
He will discuss multi-block structured meshing of a high-stagger angle axial rotor, grid topology strategies, techniques for modeling advanced features such as fillets and tip gaps, and mesh quality analysis. Mesh transformations, creation of face and cell zones and general grid interface setup, and steps used to prepare turbomachinery cases for OpenFOAM analysis and adding swirl also will be explained.
Dr. Sideroff, Pointwise technical sales engineer, earned his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at Syracuse University in the area of personal microenvironment analysis. He used Gridgen for his graduate research and is an expert in Pointwise. Pointwise is a sponsor of the workshop. For more information, see www.openfoamworkshop.org.
Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing engineering analysts today - mesh generation for computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The company's Gridgen and Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers, such as ANSYS FLUENT, STAR-CD, ANSYS CFX and OpenFOAM as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows (Intel and AMD), Linux (Intel and AMD), Mac and Unix, and has scripting languages that can automate CFD meshing. Large manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide rely on Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution.
