3D anisotropic tetrahedral extrusion (otherwise known as T-Rex) will be released soon, but the 2D surface mesh formulation of T-Rex already is available for you to use in Pointwise V16.04. You might think of T-Rex surface meshes as just symmetry boundaries for a T-Rex volume mesh, but they also can be used for 2D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations and other purposes.

This computational fluid dynamics (CFD) study investigated the aerodynamic differences between semi-covered and isolated wheels. It was carried out as part of the MSc in Race Car Aerodynamics in the School of Engineering Sciences at the University of Southampton, a unique course that teaches the fundamentals of experimental and computational aerodynamics for race car design.

The risk that tsunamis pose to coastal structures is not just from the wave impact, but also from the impact of debris that is carried by the fluid flow. Shipping containers are ubiquitous in coastal locations and represent a realistic debris object. For want of a better approximation, it is often assumed that the debris speed is equal to the fluid speed.
Customers who attend the Pointwise User Group Meeting 2011 on 8-9 November will be the first to see and learn how to use the new features in Pointwise V17. The first day of the Pointwise User Group Meeting will be dedicated to hands-on training on some of our newest and most exciting features.
