London, UK, December 15th, 2015 

Intelligent Light, the developer of FieldView 16 and provider of industry leading software and services for CFD workflows to engineering and research organizations, has joined forces with Visual Technology Services, developers of the renowned PDF3D Report Generation systems, to produce the first CFD tool with built-in 3D PDF interactive report generation features.

The flagship FieldView application is the most widely used CFD post-processing software for engineering and research. FieldView delivers scalable parallel visualization from laptops to high-performance computing (HPC), including unsteady flows, numerical analysis, extensive solver interfaces and advanced post-processing and visualization techniques.

"The FieldView 16 development team has been working tirelessly to deliver many valuable new features," commented Steve M. Legensky, General Manager and Founder of Intelligent Light. "The integration of the new 3D PDF publishing feature from PDF3D's technology will transform how our customers communicate and improve success in HPC engineering activities".

This latest software release allows 3D visuals created in FieldView to be converted into the universally, freely accessible 3D PDF format, enabling faster and easier sharing and distribution of reports to any customer, without them having to install specific software to view it. The reports enable interactive 3D review of surface contours, streamlines and legends. The report encoding methods use Visual Technology Services' highly compressed PRC (ISO 14739) technology, which can produce detailed images from large data files without sacrificing quality.

FieldView is used in a wide variety of markets including aerospace, automotive, energy and civil engineering. The popular CFD post-processor is used by engineering leaders in large organizations, by engineering consultants and by several top motorsports teams.

Formula 1 & FieldView – Winning CFD Workflows

Hear it for yourself!  

LIVE Webinar Tuesday, December 1, 2015 - Register now!

Torbjörn Larsson, Creo Dynamics AB, has an impressive background in aerodynamics and CFD methodology. His track record in Formula 1, most recently at Ferrari, establishes him as a preeminent CFD workflow engineer. He has been instrumental in building up the CFD department for the Sauber F1 team and has since led the CFD teams at Sauber, BMW and Ferrari to much success in Formula 1.


Mr.Larsson presented Formula 1 workflows designed with FieldView to a group of over 100 CFD engineers at the 2015 VINAS User's Group Meeting in Shinegawa, Japan. This international audience included CFD engineers from Motorsport, Automotive Manufacturing, Heavy Industry, Government Research Agencies and Academia.

"Presenting at the VINAS UGM in Japan was an amazing experience. Japan is synonymous with both excellence in engineering and a passion for motorsports. More knowledgeable listeners are hard to find," said Mr. Larsson. "Being able to showcase to this audience how the ultra-fast CFD workflow seen in Formula One has gained further efficiency from the integration of recent FieldView XDB technology was truly inspiring and rewarding."

F1 teams are among our most demanding customers due to the need to simultaneously achieve breakthrough results in a very short time while building a robust, reliable production workflow.

Formula 1 teams demand:

  • The ability to manage huge volumes of results data in very short timeframes
  • Ongoing acceleration of their entire CFD workflow
  • Delivery of vital engineering information to the right people in the team, on time, every day.

Mr. Larsson's presentation focused on designing workflows to meet the demands of Formula 1 CFD teams where huge volumes of data and very short timeframes require innovative and robust automation. His solution includes the use FieldView XDB extracts as a way to reduce data size and achieve required throughput.​

Mr. Larsson is a fluid dynamics and CFD methodology engineering consultant at Creo Dynamics AB, helping organizations improve the efficiency of their CFD operations.

SC15: Birds of a Feather – Scalable In Situ Data Analysis and Visualization Using VisIt/Libsim

As ultrascale simulation is developing, so is the need to interpret the data without slowing down workflows. This session, proposed by Intelligent Light and approved by the committee, will present successful uses of Libsim and build a community to share in situ experiences and lessons learned. Libsim is a popular in situ infrastructure that enables tight-coupling of simulations with VisIt, the highly scalable visualization engine created by the US Department of Energy.


Session Leaders:

  • Brad Whitlock (Primary Session Leader) – Intelligent Light
  • Cyrus Harrison (Secondary Session Leader) – Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory 

Thursday, November 19, 1:30PM – 3:00PM ROOM:13A
