tymcme is on a distinguished road

I am a student at the Georgia Institute of Technology and I am performing research on flow over an airfoil.

For the research we are using two main applications, Pointwise and Fluent. As part of a report, I would like to know include what some of the limitations are to these programs.

I know how to use the programs for exactly what I need but nothing more. Therefore, I know what the program can do and not what it can't do.

If someone could please enlighten me on what some of the limitations are of these applications, it would be much appreciated.
