"The Tail Wags the Dog – How In-Situ Processing and Data Modeling Will Enable Knowledge Extraction at Scale to Address the 2030 CFD Vision" 

Sun - 7 January 2018
03:30 PM -04:00 PM

Typically, CFD data analysis and visualization is an afterthought and at the back end of "the dog"; in order to fully exploit the knowledge contained in simulations at exascale, the tail needs to wag the dog. Simply writing ever larger files containing mesh and results will not scale when it comes to extracting knowledge from simulations. Inspired by early NASA researchers and the Department of Energy's national labs, mechanisms for processing results directly via "in situ" or "in transit" techniques are adopted for large scale CFD workflows. This talk will review applications of those technologies and how they may impact our ability to achieve the 2030 goals in knowledge extraction and Uncertainty Quantification. In addition, data modeling and analysis may play a key role in directly extracting the knowledge buried in large unsteady CFD simulations and experiments. We will explore where further developments are needed to fully exploit techniques such as Dynamic Mode Decomposition, Machine Learning and other Reduced Order Model methodologies.

Visualization Session MVC-4
Wed - 10 January 2018
9:30 AM - 12:30 PM; Tampa 1

"Visualization and Data Analytics Challenges of Large-Scale High-Fidelity Numerical Simulations of Wind Energy Applications"
Andrew C. Kirby, Zhi Yang, Dimitri J. Mavriplis, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Wyoming, Earl P. N. Duque, Brad J. Whitlock, Intelligent Light.

Wed - 10 January 2018
10:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Visualization and data analysis techniques are explored to alleviate big-data problems found in simulations regarding wind energy applications including full wind farm simulations with blade-resolved geometries for wind turbines. Techniques for streamlining workflows for large-scale simulations are investigated and instrumented in the W2A2KE3D1 software framework. In-situ analysis through Libsim is instrumented and used to export data of high-density wind turbine simulations that is post-processed using FieldView and VisIt.

    ISAV2017: In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and Visualization

    SC17 Workshop
    Sunday, Nov. 12th, 9:00-5:30 pm room 605

    The considerable interest in the HPC community regarding in situ analysis and visualization is driven by the desire to save I/O costs and time, increase accuracy with fine sampling of transient analysis and full utilization of HPC resources. As a member of the ISAV Program Committee, Intelligent Light will bring real world experience from our work on ultra scale simulations.

    Intelligent Light is a co-organizer with a team including four US National Laboratories. We also participate on the program committee and have a role in reviewing submissions for this full day workshop.

    Tutorial: In Situ Analysis and Visualization with SENSEI
    Presenters: Bethel, Bauer, Whitlock, Wolf, Loring, Rizzi
    Monday, Nov.13th, 8:30 am - 12:00 pm room 355-D

    The SENSEI community in situ data interface is an API that promotes code portability and reusability. From the simulation view, a developer can instrument their code with the SENSEI API and then make use of any number of in situ infrastructures. From the methods view, a developer can write an in situ method using the SENSEI API, then expect it to run in any number of in situ infrastructures. Attendees will learn the fundamentals of in situ data analysis and visualization leveraging this generic interface.

    Digital Engineering: CFD in Formula 1 Racing, highlights contributions by Intelligent Light

    Seeking Aerodynamic Perfection in Pixels and Wind

    F1 Teams Look for Aerodynamic Advantages in Wind Tunnel Tests and CFD Simulation

    Intelligent Light and FieldView have long been delivering results for the demanding world of Formula 1 engineering. In the October issue of Digital Engineering, Senior Editor Kenneth Wong has two articles exploring the way that CAE is used in Formula 1. 

    In the 1960s, F1 cars began to sprout wings. The so-called airfoils operate much like aircraft wings, but in reverse. Whereas airplanes use their wings to create lift, race cars use theirs to create negative lift, or downforce. "The most obvious aerodynamic devices on a Formula One car are the front and rear wings, which together account for around 60% of overall downforce (with the floor responsible for the majority of the rest)," FIA explains.

    For most F1 engineers, the race began long before the car's tire touches the track. Their quest for aerodynamic advantages began in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) programs and wind tunnel tests.

    "The role of FieldView is from when the solver run ends to when the engineer makes a decision. The software focuses on reducing the movement of results files which, in the case of F1 teams, could be massive. In minimizing data movement, it increases the CFD solution's performance and nimbleness. The software also emphasizes data management, allowing small packages of data to replace large results files while maintaining full numerical fidelity."

    Torbjörn Larsson of Creo Dynamics AB is working on Formula 1 overtake simulations. FieldView images by Intelligent Light.

    "Formula One puts more stress on CFD than anybody else we know. We work with NASA, Boeing, Lockheed, and the Department of Energy, but F1 demands daily turnaround on multi-million-cell models to understand the smallest design details or the impact of weather. They want both fidelity and
    speed."

    Altair Announces Availability of FieldView Express for the Altair Partner Alliance

     Powerful CFD Post-Processor Enriches Altair Partner Alliance Offering

    FieldView Strengthens HyperWorks CFD Post Processing Automation and Design Capabilities with Reduced Cycle Times


    Intelligent Light has been selected by Altair to extend their CFD post-processing capability by delivering FieldView Express, building on a relationship that already provides AcuFieldView to Altair's AcuSolve CFD users. The Partner Alliance provides on-demand FieldView Express capabilities to Altair customers performing CFD with a variety of solvers. 

    "FieldView Express is designed for quick and easy activation through the Altair Partner Alliance," said Steve M. Legensky, Founder and General Manager at Intelligent Light. "We hope to enable Altair's large engineering audience with the benefits of a powerful CFD post-processor in this easy to use package. Intelligent Light is proud to join the APA, building upon our relationship with Altair through which we provide AcuFieldView for the HyperWorks® CFD code AcuSim."

    With FieldView Express, it is easy to create and deliver compelling animations, visualizing your data and supporting your analyses. Videos can be saved in MP4 format, ready for use with PowerPoint or YouTube. 3D PDFs exported from FieldView Express are easily shared with clients and management and will add interactive analysis to reports and presentations. Every FieldView Express license is a parallel license and parallel processes enable faster data reads allowing users to tackle problems of greater size and fidelity than they could have attempted previously. 

    "We are pleased to further extend our partnership with Intelligent Light on CFD post processing," said Stephen Cosgrove, VP of CFD Business Development at Altair. "Our customers have told us they use multiple CFD solvers to perform their work. FieldView Express with its support of multiple solver readers allows them to standardize their CFD post processing on the most powerful, solver neutral CFD post processor available. This will enable our customers to achieve a greater degree of CFD post processing automation which will allow them to engineer better designs with reduced CFD cycle times."
