Intelligent Light and FieldView

Making Collaborative CFD Fly

"This method of aggregating data and standardizing the interrogation of the data, especially large scale, full 3D multiphyisics data is very, very necessary and very, very useful. This partnership is exciting and we are exploring the boundaries of what we can achieve with this."

Nathan Hariharan
Chair, AIAA Helicopter Hover Prediction Workshop

The world's helicopter community came together to study the complex physics of rotorcraft in hover using CFD. They needed a HPC collaboration hub that minimized researchers' efforts to collaborate in full 3D. We made it work for the AIAA Hover Prediction Workshop and we can make it work for you.

Join Dr. Nathan Hariharan, Chair, AIAA Helicopter Hover Prediction Workshop, Dr. Earl Duque, Manager of Applied Research at Intelligent Light, and Michael Senizaiz, ‎Chief Technology Officer at R Systems, as they explore how work done to support the Hover Prediction Workshop is yielding valuable lessons for any organization looking to streamline its CFD workflow.

Learn how Intelligent Light and R Systems provide the CFD expertise and on-demand HPC capability to make high-performance CFD workflow a reality:

  • Enable data sharing among many disparate members of the organization: CFD Engineers, Designers, Managers and Customers
  • Compare many different cases, even those with different meshes or from different solvers, etc.
  • Derive higher order features, like vortex path, automatically for comparison
  • Standardize the workflow so that input from many groups can be compared side by side, both visually and numerically
  • Utilize on-demand HPC resources to run automated post-processing workflows across all the datasets producing standardized outputs and enabling collaboration

A live Q & A with the speakers will follow the presentation.

    Seminar: Frankfurt, Germany - "Speed Up Production CFD Workflows with Extract-Based Post-Processing"

    Still time to register!

    Intelligent Light will hold a seminar in Frankfurt, Germany, on June 22, 2016, the same week as ISC HPC.

    The seminar, "Speed Up Production CFD Workflows with Extract-Based Post-Processing" is designed to help those using standardized plots/reports, unsteady CFD, remote HPC computing or large data to achieve greater throughput.

    Parallel computing has enabled CFD practitioners to create far more data than can be stored or accessed for post-processing and analysis, making it difficult for engineers and researchers to gain understanding via visualization, exploration and collaboration.

    Mr. Steve M. Legensky, Founder and General Manager of Intelligent Light, will present techniques and customer examples that show how extract-based methods have graduated from the research realm to the production environment. 

    Yves-Marie Lefebvre, FieldView Product Chief, will introduce the new HPC FieldView software that combines the power of open-source VisIt software with the ease-of-use and productivity of FieldView. He will also demonstrate a pre-release version of HPC FieldView, scheduled for release later this year.

    Brad Whitlock, visualization and post-processing engineer in Intelligent Light's Applied Research Group and founding developer of VisIt will showcase our recent success applying in situ techniques to production level workflows that scale from hundreds of cores to over 130,000 cores. Brad will also represent Intelligent Light and VisIt at the ISC Workshop on In-Situ Visualization on Thursday June 23 at 9AM.

    This seminar will be held from 9:30 to 12:30 on Wednesday, June 22 at the Mercure Hotel Frankfurt Airport and will be followed by a complementary lunch.

    If you are interested in participating, want more information about the seminar or HPC FieldView, simply send an email to sww@ilight.com.  We will be happy to provide details and answer your questions.

    There is no charge for participation, but be sure to reply soon as space is limited.

    We look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt.

    Seminar: Kobe, Japan - "Speed Up Production CFD Workflows with Extract-Based Post-Processing"

    Intelligent Light will hold a seminar in Kobe, Japan, on May 13, 2016, following the ParCFD Conference.

    The seminar, "Speed Up Production CFD Workflows with Extract-Based Post-Processing" is designed to help those using standardized plots/reports, unsteady CFD, remote HPC computing or large data to achieve greater throughput. During the seminar, Intelligent Light will introduce our new HPC FieldView software that combines the power of open-source VisIt software with the ease-of-use and productivity of FieldView.

    This seminar will be held from 9:30 to 12:30 at the FOCUS facility conveniently located near the ParCFD 2016 event and the K-computer and is accessible by public transport on the same line as the Kobe International Airport and the Kobe International Conference Center.

    Parallel computing has enabled CFD practitioners to create far more data than can be stored or accessed for post-processing and analysis, making it difficult for engineers and researchers to gain understanding via visualization, exploration and collaboration.
