Fueling the Push for Improved Coal-Based Energy - Intelligent Light and FieldView

Coal and Natural Gas based Energy


The challenges in coal-based energy have never been greater. Global energy demands are increasing rapidly, but concern about coal’s environmental effects make engineering new or retrofitting existing facilities difficult. Innovative designs for steam turbines that generate energy efficiently while reducing pollutants are the new imperative. Highly transient and complex, these models aren’t easily prototyped; that limitation, along with short maintenance windows when problems arise, make CFD simulation essential.

  • Combustion – flow, flame contours, heat flux patterns, temperature regulation
  • Emission controls – pollutant formation, mitigation
  • Chemical reagent interactions, concentrations

You need a highly productive, agile, and robust CFD workflow that lets you easily visualize the flows within your design, interact with the data, compare results, and get to vital insights and accurate answers fast. FieldView puts you in control of the CFD workflow with the industry’s fastest post-processing and interpretation capabilities, no matter what CFD solver you use. Advanced visualization tools bring your designs to vivid life for in-depth interrogation and persuasive presentation to all stakeholder audiences.

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 time-steps at extremely fast rates.

FieldView’s easy to use, flexible automation tools help you tackle repetitive tasks and shape the workflow to best suit your specific needs and engineering environment.

Leverage your HPC resources – scale up with parallel processing or scale out using 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.
