AutoGrid5™

Undisputed market leader for meshing rotating machinery

HIGH-QUALITY FULL HEX BLOCK STRUCTURED MESH IN MINUTES

Autogrid5™ is a fully automatic multi-block structured mesh generator for turbomachinery. Today, it is considered as the standard in the Propulsion, Energy and Engine industries.

LARGE REDUCTION OF PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT TIME & EFFORT

Through its wizard-based application-dedicated workflow, Autogrid5™ guides the users with a few clicks to generate high-quality grids in a few minutes.

HIGHER RELIABILITY AND ACCURACY OF THE SIMULATION

By ensuring a maximum mesh quality with a reduced number of cells, a controlled first cell size, and grid lines aligned with the flow paths, Autogrid5™ streamlines the simulation workflow and guarantee the reliability of the results.

PARALLEL SHARED MEMORY

For the highest-fidelity analysis where the mesh size reaches hundreds of millions of cells, Autogrid5™ generates the grid in parallel leveraging the multi-cores computing power, reducing the overall meshing time to a few minutes.

Generates 100 million cells in about 2 minutes on 16 cores!

 

This product is part of AutoMesh™.

Since we acquired AutoGrid5™, we divided our meshing time by 5, allowing us to spend more time on the post-processing and the solving of our real challenges."
