Intelligent Light and FieldView

XDBview gives you all the high performance, interactive visualization capabilities of FieldView in a free viewer.  Interrogate your CFD simulations using compact XDB files.  Review and share complex simulation results without the burden of large CFD datasets and without a license.

xdbviewT250What is an XDB?

XDB files are compact extracts that maintain the full numerical fidelity of your CFD simulation on selected surfaces and streamlines.  Generate XDB files in FieldView interactively, or in batch, based on the visualization that you create.  XDBs are 10x to 1,000x smaller than your CFD dataset and can be easily transferred, shared and archived.

Work with your data anywhere

With XDBs, small packets of data replace large results files.  Generate XDBs on your desktop or a remote HPC system, and then interact with the simulation results in XDBview on your desktop or even a laptop.  Annotate and save your own views to pass along to colleagues.

Review large unsteady datasets interactively at animation speed

Achieve true interactive exploration of your transient data.  Zoom, rotate on multiple cases as they animate through time.  High-speed, multi-windows graphics enable direct qualitative and quantitative comparisons to make your story engaging and understandable.

Agility for on the spot what-if analysis

With XDBview you are never locked into a single view.  Even while sweeping through time and space you can rotate your model, change scalars, apply thresholds, and experience multiple views simultaneously.

Share your results with clients, colleagues, and managers

XDBview is free to anyone. No license is required. Share the lightweight XDB files so anyone can explore your results. You can set up automated RESTARTS to show them exactly what you need them to see. As a reviewer, you can freely explore the dataset. Annotate and save your own views to pass along to colleagues.

New in XDBview 2

  • Perform surface sweep operations
  • Read STL files for easily including geometry in your model with minimal impact of files size
  • All new display types including vertex display for enhanced views and high performance

XDBview is always based on the latest FieldView software so you have the most advanced CFD viewer with FieldView technology "under the hood".

XDBview will read XDB files generated by FieldView 14 and newer as well all XDBs from acuFieldView 14+, the post-processor for Altair acuSolve.

 

FieldView 14 – CFD Results Without Compromise

FieldView is the industry’s tool of choice for CFD without compromise. Make your decisions quickly and with confidence.  With CFD data management, workflow productivity, and HPC capabilities FieldView users perform the CFD studies they need without constraining their simulations to meet resource limitations.

CFD is critical to organizations across industry and research. The insights that are achieved with high-fidelity CFD eclipse what was possible even just a few years ago. Successful analysts harness the power of HPC and modern CFD to develop highly productive workflows that generate accurate, timely, and actionable results that support better decision making. If your CFD workflow is not making this kind of impact contact us today.

Parallel Power to the People!

FieldView is designed for scalability and every standard FieldView license will run on 8 CPU cores. For HPC users, additional scalability (32, 64, or unlimited cores) is available at moderate additional cost. Run FieldView on a local system, on-site or cloud-based server, even across virtualized resources all standard and with maximum performance.

CFD Data Management

CFD data is large and impractical to move. With the CFD data management tools in FieldView you work with the data where it is generated: interactively or in batch processes using FieldView XDB files. FieldView XDB files are a fraction of the size of the original volume data and can be used for local, interactive post-processing, interrogation of transient results, and for archives.

“We need to have confidence in our tools in order to put the results on the car. With the lack of testing time nowadays, we have to be reasonably sure they will work straightaway. I can’t think of anything we put on the car last season, either from the wind tunnel or CFD, that didn’t generally act as we expected it to act on the track.”
