Optimizing the Flow in Civil Engineering - Intelligent Light and FieldView

Waterflow Below Dam


Optimal fluid flow is key to good design in engineering dams, canals and waterways. Understanding open channel, free surface, and internal pump flows requires robust CFD tools that easily handle steady and unsteady simulations so you can quickly visualize and interact with your data, compare results, and get to vital insights and accurate answers fast.

FieldView adds productivity and efficiency at every step of the CFD workflow, and puts you in control with the industry’s fastest post-processing and interpretation capabilities. Advanced visualization tools bring your designs to vivid life for in-depth interrogation; features such as one-click transient animation greatly enhance your ability to create compelling pictures and presentations for all stakeholder audiences.

Take advantage of FieldView’s powerful 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 time-steps at extremely fast rates, zooming out to see the whole flow field and zooming in to navigate the details.

FieldView’s easy to use automation tools help you tackle repetitive tasks and shape the workflow to best suit your specific needs and engineering environment. By embedding calculations, organizational knowledge, and best practices, you speed the path to answers and create a sustainable competitive advantage for current and future projects.

FieldView makes it easy and cost-effective to leverage your available HPC resources, increasing capacity and throughput and reducing 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.

"FieldView is easy to use... and we use it to make nice pictures and movies, but it is not only the movies, we use it a lot to get numbers like head loss and discharge rate."
