Science Explorer. Frequently Asked Questions. Multimedia Gallery. Park Passes. Technical Announcements. Employees in the News. Emergency Management. The program begins by reading a three-dimensional base grid, which can have variable row and column widths and spatially variable cell top and bottom elevations. From this base grid, GRIDGEN will continuously divide into four any cell intersecting user-provided refinement features points, lines, and polygons until the desired level of refinement is reached.

GRIDGEN will then smooth, or balance, the grid so that no two adjacent cells, including overlying and underlying cells, differ by more than a user-specified level tolerance.

Once these gridding processes are completed, GRIDGEN saves a tree structure file so that the layered quadtree grid can be quickly reconstructed as needed. Geological Survey Open-File Report , 39 p.

Getting Started

Pointwise is a software system for the generation of two-dimensional 2D and three-dimensional 3D grids. Pointwise combines the grid generation expertise and history embedded in Gridgen with more modern software engineering and graphical interfaces to make grid generation as simple as possible. You can build a grid around any type of object using Pointwise; it is not limited to any particular geometry. The grids you create in Pointwise can be used with any type of analysis software including computational fluid dynamics CFD and finite element analysis FEA. In fact, Pointwise has built-in filters for many analysis codes as well as popular neutral formats. Note: Pointwise makes unstructured, structured and hybrid grids and can export them in many different analysis software formats. This User Manual describes in detail the use of each Pointwise command.
