Paving the Way to Automotive Success

 

Saving Fuel

 

 

Fuel efficiency, passenger comfort, power, and reliability drive success in today’s competitive global automotive market. Tight production schedules, cost management pressures, and third-party suppliers pose significant challenges. In this demanding environment, your CFD workflow has to be fast, agile, and efficient, capable of handling hundreds of cases with ease and getting you to vital insights and accurate answers fast.

  • External aerodynamics
  • Powertrain – engine and transmission
  • Underhood flows (cooling, engine air intake)
  • HVAC systems
  • Aeroacoustics/noise reduction (NVH)

Harness the full value of your CFD solver investment by post-processing with FieldView. FieldView’s unprecedented speed, performance, and productivity tools meld with true ease-of-use to help you create a highly productive, flexible CFD workflow that gets you from data to decisions quickly while your solver keeps working.

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. Advanced visualization brings your design to vivid life, and creating compelling images, animations, and presentations is nearly effortless.

Readily scalable to seamlessly handle datasets of any size, 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 and reduce turnaround time.

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.

“We automatically generate full car reports, videos and graphics and share those around the company. Everyone is encouraged to investigate; everyone has access. These reports help educate everyone; we can identify what has changed on the car, where, and why. People start to appreciate that the finer detail is actually worth the effort. They can understand why something is important; for instance, why a surface may look like it could be simplified but is complex for a reason. They then have the knowledge needed to make better decisions.”
