Pointwise Polls Users on CFD News Sources

FORT WORTH, TX (April 8, 2009) – Pointwise, Inc. is taking a survey to determine where CFD engineers get their news.

"In a rapidly changing field like computational fluid dynamics (CFD), it's vital to keep abreast of the technology - software, applications and the latest advances," said Pointwise President John Chawner. "With so many news delivery channels available, no one is able to absorb the amount of information generated in the world every day.

"Pointwise wants to simplify the process by identifying the avenues of communication preferred by CFD users so we can keep them up-to-date on new developments in our software and issues affecting the industry. We are asking all CFD engineers, regardless of the software they use, to participate in our survey."

As an incentive for participating, ten respondents will be chosen to receive a free gift.

The survey will close on 31 May. Results will be posted at www.pointwise.com shortly thereafter.
