Pointwise Opens Meshy Award Contest for Best Mesh

FORT WORTH, TX (17 December 2012) – Pointwise is accepting entries for the Meshy Award contest for the most outstanding mesh generated using Pointwise or Gridgen. The winner will be announced on 20 March 2013 during the Pointwise User Group Meeting.

Dr. Michael Böttcher of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology was named winner of the Pointwise Meshy Award 2011 for meshes he generated in conjunction with a project involving steam generators and pumps for a power plant. “We are pleased to award this trophy to Dr. Michael Böttcher because the mesh and images he has generated demonstrate a profound understanding of the physics of his problem, an expertise in the Pointwise meshing software, and the ability to present results in a straightforward yet elegant way,” said Dr. John Steinbrenner, vice president of research and development at Pointwise, who presented the trophy. “It is the work of scientists like Dr. Böttcher that furthers the expanding Pointwise reputation of excellence.” +
