Presentation to the ISAV 2018 Workshop: In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and Visualization

Monday, November 12, 3:30-4:25PM, Room D168

Advances in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and high-performance computing (HPC) have allowed an amazing increase in model fidelity. For CFD practitioners, these new capabilities present challenges with the analysis of highly unsteady flows of ever-increasing complexity. Simultaneous advances in data science offer promising techniques for resolving these issues that are just starting to be applied to CFD post-processing and knowledge extraction workflows.

ISAV 2018: In Situ Infrastructures for Enabling Extreme-Scale Analysis and Visualization

Session: Monday, November 12, 9:00-5:30PM Room D168

The considerable interest in the HPC community regarding in situ analysis and visualization is due to several factors. First is an I/O cost savings, where data is analyzed and visualized while being generated, without first storing to a file system. Second is the potential for increased accuracy, where fine temporal sampling of transient analysis might expose some complex behavior missed in coarse temporal sampling. Third is the ability to use all available resources, CPU's and accelerators, in the computation of analysis products.

The workshop brings together researchers, developers and practitioners from industry, academia and government laboratories developing, applying and deploying in situ methods in extreme-scale, high-performance computing.

Tutorial: SENSEI Cross-Platform View of In Situ Analytics
Presenters: E. Wes Bethel, David Thompson, Burlen Loring, Silvio Rizzi, Brad Whitlock, Matthew Wolf, Patrick O'Leary

Sunday, November 11, 1:30-5:00PM Room C147

This tutorial covers the design and use of SENSEI, a platform for in situ visualization and analysis. Attendees will learn the basics of in situ analysis and visualization — which eliminates the need for writing large simulation state files or other data that prevents scaling to large machines — while being exposed to advanced analysis such as autocorrelation, interactive monitoring and computational steering.

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

Advancing CFD with Modal Analysis

Interest in the use of modal analysis / Reduced Order Analysis (ROA) for CFD is growing quickly. Our customers tell us that data analysis will have a huge impact and are looking for practical ways to apply it to their current work. Intelligent Light is contributing to this exciting field with an all new tutorial written by our in-house expert, Dr. Steve Makinen. Dr. Makinen is a veteran of the rotorcraft industry with extensive experience in rotorcraft aeroelasticity and coupled computational fluid/structural dynamics (CFD/CSD).

The new tutorial will allow users of FieldView 17 to explore the Data Analysis capabilities of FieldView. Step-by-step instructions provide an easy introduction to using FieldView 17 to leverage capabilities of Excel, MATLAB, Octave and NumPy. This will greatly expand the range of post-processing methods including Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) and provide a framework for users to implement other methods such as Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD). These methods can provide greater insight into simulation results and engineering design through feature identification, state-variable representation and much more.

The Data Analysis tutorial includes Octave/MATLAB programs for processing data and toolboxes for writing PLOT3D and FV-UNS files so the results can be viewed in FieldView.

I encourage you use the tutorial to become more familiar with the power of Modal Analysis for CFD. Please let us know what you think by sending an email to FieldView@ilight.com.
