Solving the Problem of Noise with FieldView - Intelligent Light and FieldView

Space Shuttle


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. Delivering robust CFD post-processing and interpretation capabilities, FieldView helps you create a highly productive, agile and reliable CFD workflow that gets you from volumes of data to informed decisions fast.

Take advantage of FieldView’s powerfully productive data management techniques to create extract databases (XDBs) that significantly reduce analysis time and storage requirements. Use XDBs with FieldView sweep caching to interactively sweep through a single dataset or multiple time-steps at extremely fast rates.

FieldView’s simple, flexible automation tools help you tackle repetitive tasks, generate reports, and embed best practices for maximum efficiency.

Readily scalable to seamlessly handle datasets of any size, even billions of nodes, FieldView leverages today’s HPC resources  so you increase capacity and throughput and reduce turnaround time while minimizing data transfer.

Intelligent Light surrounds FieldView with a full complement of services: from training to software customization. And through our Applied Research Group, our advanced CFD practice, Intelligent Light clients can access leading CFD experts in their domain for a full range of CFD projects, support and counsel.
