Optimizing the Aerodynamics Workflow with FieldView - Intelligent Light and FieldView

Wing Flutter


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.

Intelligent Light addresses Aerodynamics Workflow with Fieldview our advanced CFD post processor and our Applied Research Group: leading CFD practitioners with deep Aerospace domain experience.

FieldView: Aerospace Industry De-facto Standard.
