Why is Meshing Important for Fluid Simulations?

Meshing has a significant role when it comes to the engineering simulation process. Creating a high-quality mesh is one of the most critical factors that should be considered to ensure simulation accuracy.

What is Meshing?

Meshing is the process in which the continuous geometric space of an object is broken down into thousands or more of shapes to properly define the physical shape of the object. The more detailed a mesh is, the more accurate the 3D CAD model will be, allowing for high fidelity simulations. Meshing, also known as mesh generation, is the process of generating a two-dimensional and three-dimensional grid; it is dividing complex geometries into elements that can be used to discretize a domain. Since meshing typically consumes a significant portion of the time in acquiring simulation results, advanced automated meshing tools can provide faster and more accurate solutions.

Why is Meshing Important?

Creating the most appropriate mesh is the foundation of engineering simulations. The mesh influences the accuracy, convergence, and speed of the simulation. Computers cannot solve simulations on the CAD model’s actual geometry shape as the governing equations cannot be applied to an arbitrary shape. Mesh elements allow governing equations to be solved on predictably shaped and mathematically defined volumes. Typically, the equations solved on these meshes are partial differential equations. Due to the iterative nature of these calculations, obtaining a solution to these equations is not practical by hand, and so computational methods such as Computational Fluid Dynamics are employed.

COMBINING SIMULATION AND INNOVATION TO ASSESS AND IMPROVE VENTILATOR PERFORMANCE TO FIGHT COVID-19

With COVID-19 defining the new normal with social distancing, quarantining, and working from home, this is an unfamiliar time for many of us. Since the beginning of this outbreak, ventilators have been a key focus as hospitals and elected officials scramble to replenish supplies. So long as we had enough of the devices, lives would be saved. “It’s all about the ventilators,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York said in a March 18 press briefing, adding that the state could need up to 37,000 ventilators at the peak of the outbreak, compared to the existing supply of 3,000.

To contribute to the fight against COVID-19, SimuTech Group has collaborated with Rice University and MIT to help accelerate the efforts in improving ventilator performance.
