Nick Wyman to Head New Research Group at Pointwise

FORT WORTH, TX (8 Jun 2007) – Pointwise is pleased to announce that Nick Wyman has been named Director of Applied Research. The goal of the new Applied Research Group is to partner with other companies and government organizations on development projects that will directly impact Pointwise's products.

Nick has been actively developing Pointwise software for over 9 years. As Manager of Product Development, he led the team through many releases of Gridgen, the reliable CFD mesher, and development of the soon to be released, state-of-the-art, Pointwise product. Prior to joining Pointwise, Nick performed CFD analysis for a wide variety of industries and developed mesh generation software for turbomachinery.

"The formation of the Applied Research Group is very exciting. It will allow us to focus on long term development projects which will be extremely valuable for Pointwise clients," said Nick. "By partnering with customers, we will be developing the meshing technology most important to our users."

Significant new features in Pointwise's Gridgen software resulted from prior contracted development projects. For example, the multigrid elliptic solver and solid modeling capabilities were developed in partnership with the United States government. The Applied Research Group plans to build on this success.
