Get Published in The Connector

Pointwise is always on the lookout for interesting articles to share with readers of The Connector. A challenging project, an interesting or novel application for which Pointwise was used for meshing, a script or new CAE plugin – these are examples of the kinds of articles that would qualify. There's no need to write something from scratch. If you recently presented your work at a conference, we can collaborate on editing that paper or presentation into a form suitable for The Connector.

Article Examples

Here are a few examples of articles contributed by customers:

ballast water filtration

Charles Crosby of Resource Ballast Technologies, Cape CFD in Cape Town, South Africa, wrote about using OpenFOAM® and Pointwise's T-Rex meshing capability for the complex geometry needed in the fight against ballast-water borne organisms. These organisms can threaten maritime ecosystems around the world.


Pointwise is playing an important role in flight experiment and ground-based research supporting SCRAMSPACE (Scramjet-based Access-to-Space Systems). Russell R. Boyce adapted a paper he wrote with Sandy C. Tirtey, Melrose Brown and Hideaki Ogawa, Centre for Hypersonics, The University of Queensland (Australia), for publication in The Connector.

sports car wheel effects

Thibaud Muller and Dr. Kenji Takeda at the School of Engineering Sciences, University of Southampton, UK, researched the aerodynamic differences between semi-covered and isolated wheels on sports cars. Their paper was the starting point for an article about the effects of the interaction between the wheel cover-induced trailing vortices and the flow around the wheel cavity.

wind turbine siting

The plant siting and forecasting group at Global Flow Solutions, Vestas Technology R&D uses Pointwise to optimize wind power production. Dr. Gregory S. Oxley, a wind and site computational fluid dynamics engineer, wrote about how they check geographic site influence and try to minimize bad wind risks using Glyph scripts in Pointwise to automate their gridding process.
