Highly unsteady and complex, aeroengines pose significant design, airframe integration, and large data management challenges. You need strategic, robust CFD simulation and visualization tools to thoroughly understand the performance of your engine design. Even extensive physical testing cannot reveal, nor isolate, hidden physics or phenomena that occur too quickly or in non-testable conditions.

Success requires an efficient, productive CFD workflow that helps you quickly visualize and interrogate even your largest models, compare results, and identify numbers of merit and areas of interest for further exploration in:

  • Thrust and efficiency (performance, range, fuel efficiency)
  • Combustion stability, predictability of burn
  • Shock propagation
  • Aeroacoustics / noise reduction
  • Emissions

Short time scales and the need to optimize engine performance over a wide range of operating conditions add to your development challenge. FieldView responds with the industry’s fastest post-processing and interpretation capabilities, most advanced visualization, and powerfully productive data management and automation tools. Maximize use of your HPC resources with parallel or batch processing workflow options.

FieldView works with virtually any in-house or commercial solver, delivering:

  • High-performance algorithms and tools such as interactive streamlines and streaklines
  • Automatic detection of vortex cores, surface flows, and shock values
  • Comparison tools, both qualitative and quantitative
  • Rapid, one-click transient animation
  • Specialized tools for handling rotating machinery.

Intelligent Light surrounds FieldView with a full complement of services: from training to software customization.

  • Aerodynamics – drag reduction, lift, Reynolds and Mach numbers
  • High-lift devices –  including STOVL and V/STOL applications
  • Aeroacoustics and noise reduction
  • Airfoil devices – flaps, slats, ailerons/spoilers, multi-element airfoils
  • Passive and active boundary layer control devices

Making things move fast and smoothly is the essence of aerodynamics. Making the engineering process run fast and smoothly in aircraft aerodynamics is essential to meeting cost and schedule goals, exceeding performance targets, and creating a sustainable competitive advantage. Complex, highly unsteady flows, very large datasets, and widely varying operating conditions pose many workflow challenges. New designs must achieve significant performance gains in areas like fuel efficiency and cruising range, making optimization important. Data comparison among multiple simulations is extensive, and often requires access to much earlier data.

In the world of aircraft, noise isn’t just a distraction – it’s a problem, and not just from an operational or regulatory standpoint. Predicting and reducing noise requires coupling aeroacoustics and CFD, resulting in massive, unsteady datasets that strain both computing resources and your ability to efficiently identify the most critical information from these complex cases:

  • Sound propagation
  • Atmospheric effects
  • Noise abatement

Intelligent Light’s Applied Research Group is collaborating with NASA Langley and Penn State University in pioneering significant advances in computational aeroacoustics. FieldView, the de facto standard in the aircraft industry, leverages that expertise.
