 Note to editors:

Founded in 1997, Manchester based Sharc is a developer of pre/post processor software for finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Its flagship Harpoon mesher produces high quality body-fitted hex meshes. The automatic generation of hex dominant volume meshes and/or quad dominant surface meshes bypasses the need for time consuming surface mesh generation and grid density specification.
