In this talk, I will present a method to construct nontrivial global solutions to some quasilinear wave equations in three space dimensions. Starting from a global solution to the geometric reduced system satisfying several pointwise estimates, we find a matching exact global solution to the original quasilinear wave equations. As an application of this method, we will construct nontrivial global solutions to Fritz John's counterexample $\Box u=u_tu_{tt}$ and the 3D compressible Euler equations without vorticity for $t\geq 0$.
