Pointwise Offers Free License for SAE Aero Design Competition

FORT WORTH, TX (7 September 2010)—As a sponsor of SAE International’s Aero Design® West, Pointwise is making its computational fluid dynamics (CFD) meshing software available without charge to students participating in the SAE Aero Design competition in both the east and west events. The SAE Aero Design West competition will be in Fort Worth, TX, 18-20 March 2011.

“Part of our mission at Pointwise is CFD and meshing advocacy, which includes encouraging the development of engineering students,” said John Chawner, Pointwise president. “By providing our software for student teams, we give them the opportunity to work with the same tools used by professional aerospace engineers around the world and experience the same high quality technical support our customers enjoy.

The design competition is intended to provide undergraduate and graduate engineering students with real-life engineering challenges. Besides the flight of their design, teams are scored on their design report and oral presentations, which demonstrate communication skills vital in the engineering workplace.

The SAE Aero Design West competition will be in Fort Worth, TX, 18-20 March 2011. SAE Aero Design East will be in Marietta, GA, 29 April-1 May 2011.
