Getting Propulsion Devices off the Ground Fast - Intelligent Light and FieldView



When integrating propulsive devices into an aircraft design, you have to answer many key questions. How do you house the engines, store and deliver fuel and air, control temperature, optimize performance over a wide range of flight conditions, and more? Even slight changes in nacelle geometry, position, or airflow can mean radical changes in aerodynamics. You also have to work closely with airframe and engine manufacturers, trading large, complex data on a regular basis.

Managing all this requires sophisticated CFD simulation tools that illuminate the physics of propulsion systems and allow you to quickly visualize, explore, compare, and identify vital answers buried in a mountain of complex transient data – and then easily share those answers with others.

Post-processing with FieldView offers unprecedented speed, performance, and productivity, helping you create a highly productive, agile and reliable CFD workflow.

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

Use FieldView’s simple, flexible automation tools to create accessible, repeatable routines that make quick work of standard tasks and capture your team’s best practices.

Readily scalable to seamlessly handle datasets of any size, even billions of nodes, FieldView leverages today’s HPC resources. Use FieldView on a desktop, a cluster, or on the cloud; scale up or scale out using parallel and concurrent batch processing to increase capacity and throughput.

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.

Unmanned vehicle simulation shows iso-surface of pressure during high angle of attack. Particles show relative velocity of airflow over the wing’s leading edge and surface.


"I tried PFPR to read partitioned BCM grid data and successfully visualized! The speed of reading Plot3D files in FieldView 13 is very fast compared to Tecplot360, and it's so easy to read partitioned grid data because Tecplot360 needs to write a script. FieldView 13 is so nice!"
