How does GridPro work?
Unique Technology Assures Highest Quality Grids
GridPro software employs a powerful proprietary Dynamic Boundary Conforming (DBC) technology to automatically map topology wireframes onto high-quality, multi-block grids with just a click of the mouse.
At the heart of the technology is a unique topology paradigm. A user creates a topology wireframe by interactively positioning a sparse set of points around a given geometry from a CAD program. These points are labeled to correspond to the bounding surfaces of the region being analyzed. This process defines a coarse, unstructured, hexahedral wireframe. Unlike the frames of some other grid generation systems, the pattern defining points do not need to be precisely positioned.
GridPro's DBC technology automatically morphs the topology wireframe grid into conformity with the bounding geometry, generating a multi-block grid. The process is driven by our algorithms that ensure the highest possible level of grid quality available under the constraints defined by the user. This quality level is difficult, if not impossible to attain by traditional methods of multi-block grid generation.
DBC technology enables high-quality design optimization to proceed automatically. As users make changes in region boundaries to achieve the desired physical attributes, GridPro dynamically tracks the evolving boundary shapes.
With this technology, users are not required to generate surface grids or build items such as block edges and their pointwise distributions. The user simply gets both surface and volume grids simultaneously and automatically. Traditional approaches to grid generation are labor intensive and highly dependent upon user input.
GridPro's unique methodology significantly increases productivity by minimizing the amount of user interaction and individual input. Its mathematical engine relieves much of the tedious work of constructing the various parts of a grid and then properly assembling them.
