Pointwise Announces Large Software Donation to Syracuse University

FORT WORTH, TX (3 October 2011)—Pointwise is pleased to announce the donation of 36 fully-supported licenses of its Pointwise computational fluid dynamics (CFD) mesh generation software to the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) in the L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science at Syracuse University. SU graduate and undergraduate students will use this software in both their research and coursework.

“Pointwise mesh generation software is among the most advanced tools for CFD meshing, and is being used by industry worldwide,” says Prof. Thong Q. Dang. “With this donation, our undergraduate and graduate students will be exposed to this meshing technology through our ‘Application of CFD’ course. Additionally, several MAE research programs take advantage of this software, such as aerospace engineering, indoor environmental and energy, and data center cooling.”

“It gives me great pleasure to be able to contribute in a small way to the education of MAE students at Syracuse, especially the undergrads since they remind me of my time at SU,” said John Chawner, Pointwise’s president and co-founder. “It is very gratifying to know that some of these students now will graduate with practical CFD experience and an appreciation of mesh generation.”

Mr. Chawner is a 1984 graduate of Syracuse University with a dual B.S. degree in aerospace and mechanical engineering. He has been a member of the advisory board for the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering for the past six years. 

Pointwise, a longtime supporter of the academic engineering community, has a widely used academic licensing program, including the Pointwise Teaching Partnership, which is being utilized by the U.S. Air Force Academy, the University of Tennessee SimCenter at Chattanooga, University of Queensland, RWTH Aachen and others.

Pointwise, Inc. is solving the top problem facing engineering analysts today – mesh generation for computational fluid dynamics. The company’s Gridgen and Pointwise software generates structured, unstructured and hybrid meshes; interfaces with CFD solvers, such as ANSYS FLUENT, STAR-CCM+, ANSYS CFX and OpenFOAM as well as many neutral formats, such as CGNS; runs on Windows (Intel and AMD), Linux (Intel and AMD), Mac and Unix, and has scripting languages that can automate CFD meshing. Large manufacturing firms and research organizations worldwide rely on
Pointwise as their complete CFD preprocessing solution.
