A few weeks ago several Pointwise engineers attended the 22nd International Meshing Roundtable (IMR). They brought with them a grid Carolyn Woeber and I generated for a benchmark geometry provided by the IMR steering committee.

University of Texas at Arlington's (UTA) racing partnership with Pointwise during the past three years has resulted in an influx of aggressive aerodynamic development for the UTA Formula SAE race cars. The grid generation software has been crucial in several developments that have resulted in significant improvements to the wing packages on the cars.
Many of you have already had an opportunity to delve into the new capabilities in V17.1 R4 (released on 30 September), either through your own exploration and usage or via the webinar we held on 07 November.

As a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) practitioner and researcher, I have been using the Gridgen mesh generator for more than 30 years, starting before Pointwise, Inc. was formed. I have been hesitant to switch to the Pointwise software due to my familiarity with Gridgen, but I knew that I was missing out on some great features.
CFD Technologies, operated by John Stone, has been Pointwise's distributor in the United Kingdom for 13 years. Stone, a veteran in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), began his career at Fluent Europe, where he was one of the original developers of RAMPANT, the first commercial CFD code to fully exploit unstructured technology and the predecessor to FLUENT v5.
