Intelligent Light and FieldView

Harnessing the power of HPC for success in CFD

"To achieve 45 seconds of CFD at 60 Hz, we used VisIt/Libsim in situ to create extracts that were 21X smaller than the volume files, wall clock times were 10X less to produce the XDB files (extracts) and transfer times and space requirements were also greatly reduced. We were then able to post-process in hours what had been taking days."

Intelligent Light will hold a one-day event on harnessing the power of HPC for CFD engineers. New methods for handling large CFD data sets will be presented with a special focus on using data computed on remote HPC resources. Case studies of innovative solutions in use by our clients today will provide concrete examples of how we can put the same technologies to work for you.

You will learn:

  • How extract-based workflows are being used in industry to unblock data bottlenecks
  • How in situ and extracts can help you increase fidelity: finer meshes, more transient time steps and the ability to explore more parametric options
  • How to take full advantage of remote HPC with a combination of local and remote rendering options and by leaving large files in place on remote systems
  • How automated report generation done in batch enables our clients to get the reports they need on time

We hope you will participate and learn how you can join the growing number of organizations that are Harnessing the power of HPC for success in CFD

Updated: In Situ Processing and Workflow Innovation at Par CFD

UPDATED with new speaker info 4/17/2017

The state of the art in HPC-driven CFD will be explored this May, at Parallel CFD (ParCFD) is Glasgow, Scotland, and Intelligent Light will share news from the front lines of CFD as it is used in production. 

In a plenary session, Steve M. Legensky, Founder and General Manager of Intelligent Light, will present ​A Survey of Production Applications of In Situ Post-Processing to Enable HPC-Scale CFD", giving real world examples of how our clients are using in situ workflows designed by Intelligent Light to eliminate file transfer bottlenecks, allow increased fidelity and faster turnaround. 

A mini symposium "In Situ Processing for Computational Fluid Dynamics Data Analysis and Visualization" will be co-chaired by Dr. Earl Duque, Manager of Applied Research at Intelligent Light, and Dr. E. Wes Bethel, Senior Computer Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Speakers include:

  • ​E. Wes Bethel - Lawrence Berkeley National Lab -  "In Situ Methods, Infrastructures, and Applications on HPC Platforms: Knowledge Discovery with Minimal I/O"
  • Seiji Tsutsumi - Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency - "Best practice for in-situ visualization of large-scale data in supercomputer"
  • Brad Whitlock - Intelligent Light - "Recent improvements to VisIt/Libsim" 
  • Hadi Salimi - French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation  - "Damaris: In Situ Data Analysis and Visualization in Support of Large-Scale CFD Simulations" 
  • Dave Pugmire - Oak Ridge National Lab - "In transit visualization of full and reduced simulation data on high performance computing platforms"

If you plan to participate at ParCFD we hope you will take the opportunity to meet with Steve Legensky and Earl Duque at the sessions mentioned above or at our table in the exhibit area. If you are not able to attend but would like to learn about in situ processing and workflow innovation for production CFD, please contact us

ParCFD is an annual international conference devoted to recent developments in parallel computing and its applications to the field of CFD. The 29th International Conference on Parallel Computational Fluid Dynamics will take place at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland from 15-17 May 2017, at the flagship Technology and Innovation Centre.
