Nutils has been used in scientific publications since its earliest releases, such as this 2015 analysis of a trabecular bone fragment by Verhoosel et al, combining several of Nutils' strengths including the Finite Cell Method, hierarchical refinement, and isogeometric analysis. One of its images was later selected to feature as cover art for the Encyclopedia of Computational Mechanics.

Nutils has since been used in a wide range of applications, pushing the boundaries of computational techniques, studying physical phenomena, and testing new models. The publication overview lists an up to date selection of Nutils powered research. If you are using Nutils in your own research, please consider citing Nutils in your publications.
