GridPro 9.0 has launched, stepping up its abilities for generating high quality meshes for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation, with versatile, automatic grid generation.

Adding what GridPro says are significant enhancements in block topology generation, grid generation, and automation the latest version and geometry handling.

For geometry handling, there are new surface import formats, as well as STEP and IGES import. Users can create geometry within GridPro using new creation tools, while imported models can better healed and surface faceting improved with updated tools.

Enhancements to blocking topology sees advanced smoothers, a new block topology macro for axisymmetric geometries and 3D block topology array. Advanced boundary layer clustering, enhanced and faster grid block smoothing has also been added in V9.0.

The release also introduces a new vertical application for fully automated block topology and mesh generation of Volute geometries.

“Our team has worked hard to provide significant enhancements for high quality meshes, and we are pleased to introduce these improvements in GridPro
version 9.0,” said Dr. Peter Eiseman, CEO. “This version of GridPro is a major step forward in providing our customers with the best tool to generate high quality meshes for a broad range of geometries and CFD related phenomena in a timely manner.”

Developed by Program Development Company, GridPro has a focus on automation and robustness without compromising mesh quality. With users including developers of turbo machinery, oil and gas machinery and aerospace. PDC was founded in 1989 by Dr. Peter Eiseman to cater to the high-quality grid requirements of NASA’s Glenn Research Centre.
