Use Pointwise for Free for Your Collegiate Design Competitions

When you are competing in a design competition and are faced with real-world situations and timelines, you will need a CFD preprocessor that offers you quality grids in the shortest time possible.

Use Pointwise, the powerful CFD preprocessor chosen by top aerospace professionals. Pointwise has an intuitive interface offering advanced automation and flexible manual controls and sophisticated grid generation algorithms. Pointwise will give you the competitive edge needed to turn your ideas into a winning design.

In 2011, the Formula SAE team at the University of Texas at Arlington used Pointwise to study the behavior of their car from an aerodynamic perspective. Read their article Meshing and Formula SAE at UTA in our bi-monthly newsletter The Connector.
