Intelligent Light and FieldView

Intelligent Light is Proud to Sponsor Aerospace Fluid Science Summer School 2017 in Japan

This month, Aerospace Fluid Science Summer School 2017 was held at Urabandai, Fukushima, Japan. 49 students, professors and researchers from 12 universities and organizations participated this year. The goal of this event is for students to present their work then receive comments and suggestions from professors and students outside of their universities. 

The number of participants has increased greatly year after year. This has limited discussion time with each student in the conventional conference style. In response, starting this year, a poster session style was employed. This made more detailed discussion with each student possible.

We were glad to help the students and advance aerospace education by supporting this event . We are particularly proud to see students from our University Partners at Tohoku University and Tokyo University of Electro-Communications.

航空宇宙流体科学サマースクール2017を協賛しました

9月7日から9日にかけて、福島県裏磐梯にて航空宇宙流体科学サマースクール2017が開催されました。今年は12の組織から49名の方々が参加されました。本サマースクールの目的は学生さん達に研究結果のみならず、問題やアイデアなども発表していただき普段ゆっくりお話しできる機会の少ない他の大学や研究機関の方々から助言をいただく事で す。

年々参加者が増え、学会のような発表形式では一人の学生に割ける時間が限られてきたため、今回よりポスターセッション形式が採用されました。結果学生さん達一人一人とじっくり話をすることができました。

弊社はこのイベントの開催に協力する事により、学生さん達の研究のお役に立つことが出来とてもうれしく思っております。また弊社のUniversity Partnerである東北大学および東京電気通信大学からも参加していただけ嬉しく思っております。

UT Knoxville's James Coder - An agent of change in aviation

We are excited to welcome Professor James Coder and his computational aerodynamics research team at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville as a new University Partner for 2017-18. 

Professor James Coder, Intelligent Light University Partner

NASA recently selected Professor Coder to lead a team pursuing aviation breakthroughs designing an ultra-efficient aerodynamic wing enabling substantial reductions in fuel or energy consumption. Funded by NASA's Aeronautics University Leadership Initiative, the team includes researchers from Penn State University, Texas A&M University, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Rutgers University, the University of Wyoming and two aviation companies—the Boeing Corporation and Airfoils, Inc. Many of these organizations are also Intelligent Light customers and FieldView users.

"Potential outcomes of the research could include revolutionary technologies, operational concepts, design tools, models, or other advancements we can't even begin to characterize today," said Doug Rohn, director of NASA's Transformative Aeronautics Concepts Program. 

“ULI... leadership in innovation to contribute to our nation’s aviation community,” - Doug Rohn, NASA

A longtime user of FieldView, Dr. Coder uses FieldView throughout the CFD workflow in conjunction with the team's CFD solvers, OVERFLOW 2 and SU2. 

  • Engineers use FieldView to ensure their simulations are properly set up, visualize the models before committing to simulation runs and for debugging input files.
  • During solver runs, the team uses FieldView to verify correct qualitative solution behavior is present in the code, and to ensure that boundary conditions are being properly enforced.
  • Visualizing results post-processed with FieldView provides high quality images and interactive capability to support interrogation by the engineers. Common visualization tools include surface contour images, constant-coordinate planes/slices and isosurfaces.
  • Much of the group's current research pertains to unsteady flows with resolved turbulent content, FieldView is used to generate isosurfaces of Q-criterion to explore the structure of the turbulence and to spot-check on the length scales being resolved.

"Creating a better wing—one with less drag, one that is more efficient—is where we can really make a difference. This is a game changer for aviation."

James Coder, Assistant Professor of Aerospace Engineering
University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Dr. Coder and Intelligent Light have participated together in the AIAA High Lift Prediction and Rotorcraft Hover Prediction Workshops for several years.

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.
