FORT WORTH, TX (10 November 2015) – Pointwise just completed its first ever Wallpaper Contest to celebrate meshing artistry. The contest gave people who generate meshes for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with the Pointwise software a chance to show off the aesthetic aspects of their grids. It also allowed the CFD community to decide which grid was the most beautiful.
Formula 1 Tire created by Tessa Uroi? with the University of Zagreb won the 2015 contest with their image of a mesh around a Formula 1 tire with grooves: a surface mesh is shown, as well as slices through the interior.
Tessa has the distinction of being the winner of our inaugural Wallpaper Contest and has won a souvenir box of Pointwise branded items.
The winning image is displayed on Pointwise’s homepage at www.pointwise.com and the wallpaper may be downloaded at www.pointwise.com/wallpaper.
