Simple Car
Simple car hybrid mesh

DESCRIPTION

The simple-car has a surface mesh made of triangles and volume mesh consisting of tetrahedral cells with prism cells underneath the car. No inflation is applied to the mesh. Exported mesh tested with OpenFOAM-v2006 simpleFoam, and converges well, however only tested at lower speeds. The provided mesh was exported from the Pointwise case file included with the download. If you want to modify or re-export the mesh, you will need a licenced version of Pointwise.

Note Pointwise mesh in inches, and OpenFOAM mesh scaled to m.

MESH VISUALISATION

Use the freely available Pointwise Viewer to view virtually any mesh file in 3-D, display it in a variety of styles, and compute any of dozens of mesh quality metrics. Built-in mesh importers are available for two dozen formats, including CGNS, FUN3D, OpenFOAM, SU2, UGRID, and more. If your mesh format isn’t available, an SDK is available for you to write your own mesh importer that appears in the GUI automatically at startup. The meshes can be displayed however best suits your needs: wireframe, hidden line, solid fill, or shaded. Tools are available for measuring distances. And you can assess your mesh’s quality by computing and displaying a wide variety of metrics, including Jacobian, skewness, size ratios, and more. Pointwise Viewer also provides geometry model viewing capability for models in ACIS, CATIA, Creo, IGES, STEP, SolidWorks, STL, and other formats.
