Large scale CFD run on HPC systems generate huge volumes of results requiring a workflow that allows users to manage the large data and extract useful information efficiently. Workflows that do not keep pace with the rate of simulation prevent people from making the most of their simulations. The negative outcomes can include not sharing data effectively or perhaps even avoiding the use of HPC resources to begin with.

We've made it simple to use the best resources available for your CFD. We'll show you how we are helping our customers achieve the promise of HPC for large CFD by reducing the data bottleneck and lowering costs. Cray and Intelligent Light invite you to join this live discussion and learn how some of the most productive CFD users in the world are working with their large data.

We'll also discuss an industry collaboration aimed at improving the quality of CFD simulation of the physics of helicopter flight. The AIAA Hover Prediction Workshop uses data from multiple organizations submitting varied solutions for a helicopter in hover. The results are brought together on an shared HPC resource where standardized, automated post-processing is performed. Results are directly compared, reports are generated and extracts are delivered that can be shared, explored interactively and archived.

VisIt Prime training at Tokyo University of Science

Intelligent Light delivered a customized training session on the use and deployment of VisIt Prime, our new software and service package, at Tokyo University of Science. We have hardened and enhanced VisIt and now offer professional support from our global support team. The training - given by Brad Whitlock, a primary VisIt developer, and supported by Atsushi Toyoda, Ph. D. from our Asia Pacific Technical Office - introduced open source VisIt as a general purpose parallel visualization tool and VisIt Prime as the supported version from Intelligent Light. VisIt and VisIt Prime are supported by Intelligent Light, bringing our thirty years of experience in professional software delivery and support to the VisIt community.

To request more information about such training in Japan, please email Dr. Atsushi Toyoda from our Asia Pacific Technical Office

UQ with Dakota & FieldView XDB Workflow at Overset Grids Symposium October 17–20, 2016

As CFD users increasingly exploit ultrascale HPC capability and approach the realm of exascale, they will run studies consisting of many related simulations at very high fidelity. This will give engineers and researchers both the ability and need to assess the quality of their simulations. When simulation quality has been vetted, engineering judgments and investment decisions can be made with confidence. 

Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) provides a means to support this need and Intelligent Light has been working on integrating UQ tools including Sandia National Lab's Dakota in an extract-based (XDB) workflow where processing takes place while solutions are in memory and data storage/transfer needs are dramatically reduced.

Dr. Earl P. N. Duque will present "Uncertainty Quantification with Dakota-OVERFLOW within an in situ based FieldView XDB Workflow" at the Overset Grids Meeting. Meet with Dr. Duque and Joe Oliver, Global Sales Manager, to learn how FieldView users are getting more information from their data. Put the latest in high-productivity post-processing, in situ processing and CFD data management techniques to work for you.

Intelligent Light is proud to sponsor this year's symposium which will be held at the Future of Flight Aviation Center in Mukilteo, Washington on October 17-20, 2016.

Presentation Abstract:

Uncertainty Quantification with Dakota-OVERFLOW Within an In Situ Based FieldView XDB Workflow
Authors:
Earl P.N. Duque, Intelligent Light
Dan Heipler, Intelligent Light

NASA has called out the integration of VV/UQ tools into engineering workflows as a vital component of its "CFD Vision 2030 Study". In that document, the authors assert that as exascale computing becomes available, the capability to perform many highly resolved CFD simulations will become ubiquitous, enabling the ability, and need, to perform UQ and sensitivity analysis. To address this need, this presentation summarizes current work whereby the Dakota code drives an ensemble of OVERFLOW2 jobs to explore a nested epistemic-aleatory parameter space. Concurrently, OVERFLOW2 instrumented with VisIt/Libsim creates FieldView XDB surfaces via in situ processing to reduce the data for post-hoc visualization and analysis. The presentation presents UQ concepts in general and their implementation within the current framework.

This work is sponsored by a DOE Office of Science grant (DE-SC0015162)
