The 3rd Flow Visualization Showcase was held at AIAA Aviation in Dallas this June. The FDTC/MSTC/APA Flow Visualization Event is essentially a video poster session that provides participants an opportunity to showcase their fluid-dynamic visualizations. This year, nineteen participants presented their work.

Three visualizations were selected for awards.

This year congratulations go to:

Patricia Venturadiaz, NASA Ames, for Most Artistic Flow Visualization

Dale Jiang, Baylor University, for Most Quantitatively Descriptive Flow Visualization

Mehdi Khorrami, NASA Ames, for Most Comprehensive Flow Visualization

Intelligent Light would like to thank all the participants as well as Brian Smith, the organizer of this event. We look forward to continuing our participation next year in support of the flow visualization community.

CFD Melbourne Meet Up

FieldView users down under got together this month with other CFD users for the 3rd CFD Melbourne Meet Up. Long time FieldView user, Dr. Peter Witt of CSIRO, presented his work as Research Team Leader using CFD for the mineral processing, chemical processing, petroleum and power generation industries.

Co-sponsored by our partner John Brookes of ATD International, and by Darrin Stephens of Applied CCM, and Cray, Inc., the Meet Up is a chance for CFD practitioners to come together to compare tools and techniques and learn about recent advancements in CFD. Two more Meet Ups are scheduled for later this year.

Data Analytics for Engineering: THE Topic for the 21st Century

Last June I was asked by Cambridge University Press to review a manuscript for a new book on data-driven engineering by Steve Brunton and Nathan Kutz, two leaders in this field. I have been studying this topic and participating in various research and workshop activities on modal and state-space analysis techniques. I was both flattered and energized by this project. The book has just been published and is going to be a wonderful reference and teaching tool for many years to come. I encourage anyone interested in engineering applications of machine learning, dynamical systems and control to check it out at Cambridge University Press.

Data Science for CFD with FieldView Analytics

Intelligent Light will present Data Science for CFD with FieldView Analytics at the 2018 Global Altair Technology Conference, October 18, 2018 in Paris, France.

I am honored that Altair has invited me to share the Keynote for the Applied Fluid Dynamics​ session and grateful for the opportunity to contribute to this major CAE event by addressing challenges facing the industry today.

Altair customers rely on FieldView Express and AcuFieldView to help understand and present their CFD results to clients, management, other engineers and designers. With the presentation at this year's ATC, I will expand on the role that data science can play to increase understanding of CFD results and help companies make better engineering decisions.

Time: 8:30 AM

Date: October, 18, 2018
