A mesh generated by Pointwise engineers Travis Carrigan and Carolyn Woeber won the International Meshing Roundtable (IMR) Meshing Maestro and Meshing Contest awards at the recent IMR in Orlando, Fla. Pointwise's contest entry was a hybrid mesh generated with its T-Rex (anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion) technique for a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solution. Pointwise's winning entry in the Meshing Maestro, a poster competition, featured illustrations of its mesh from the meshing contest.
"We couldn't be happier with the work done by Carolyn and Travis," said John Chawner, president of Pointwise. "And to have their work recognized for both technical merit and aesthetics by the IMR was icing on the cake, especially when you consider the strength of the other entries in both events."
This was the first IMR meshing contest. Entrants were required to generation a mesh for a notional unmanned aerial vehicle.
