Fluent releases TGrid 3.4

Fluent : 18 June, 2001  (New Product)
Fluent Inc announces the release of TGrid 3.4, its popular unstructured meshing tool for CFD model building. All CFD analysis requires that a geometrical representation of the problem be constructed and covered with a computational mesh, or grid. TGrid is one of several tools that Fluent provides to the users of its CFD software in order to streamline and take the guesswork out of the sometimes-tedious task of building a computational mesh. An unstructured mesh is made up of elements such as tetrahedra pyramids, and wedges, in addition to the traditional hexahedral (brick) elements, for greater flexibility, particularly in the case of complicated shapes. 'One key advance in TGrid 3.4 is the ability to grow prism layers along non-planar boundaries,' says Scott Gilmore, Fluent's Manager of Added-Value Analysis Products. 'This can substantially reduce design time,' adds Gilmore.

Improved Meshing Quality and Speed
TGrid 3.4 has the ability to automatically refine surface meshes that are in close proximity; this solves one of the most common problems of unstructured meshing in complicated geometries. New commands in TGrid 3.4 aid in defining resolution, giving the engineer more control than ever over the quality of surface meshes.

'You can now intersect two overlapping surface meshes to properly connect them with a touch of a button, with TGrid automatically subdividing faces and adjusting nodes as needed,' says Gilmore. 'The ability to project mesh faces and nodes onto nearby surface mesh zones continues TGrid's tradition of meeting the needs of our customers.'

Availability
TGrid 3.4 is now available from Fluent Inc. Visit Fluent's web site (www.fluent.com) for a listing of worldwide offices and distributors.
