"In a rapidly changing field like CFD, it’s vital to keep abreast of the technology – software, applications and the latest advances," said Pointwise President John Chawner.

“Pointwise wants to simplify the process by identifying the avenues of communication preferred by CFD users so we can keep them up-to-date on new developments in our software and issues affecting the industry. We are asking all CFD engineers, regardless of the software they use, to participate in our survey.”

As an incentive for participating, 10 respondents will be chosen to receive a free gift.

The survey will close on May 31. Results will be posted at shortly thereafter.
