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.

When: Tuesday, May 9, 2017, 2:00 PM Eastern

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

European Rotorcraft Forum September 5-8, 2016

Comparing many different CFD cases is often complicated by the use of differing meshes, solver codes and time intervals. Intelligent Light is working with CFD users in industry to develop and demonstrate engineered workflows to support the direct comparison of varied data.

The helicopter community seeks quality methods that allow for cost effective, accurate and timely simulations of hovering flight. The Helicopter Hover Prediction Workshop 2016 provides an opportunity to apply a standardized, automated post-processing workflow that eases dataset comparison, report generation and knowledge extraction for a diverse set of CFD results derived from varied models and solvers. 

Dr. Earl P. N. Duque, Intelligent Light's Manager of Applied Research and Yves-Marie Lefebvre, FieldView Product Chief participated in the European Rotorcraft Forum September 5-8, 2016, in Lille, France. Dr. Duque presented in the aerodynamics track and  the CFD workflow that enabled the work has applications for all CFD users.

​Direct comparisons of the CFD simulation results and the standardized post-processing scheme based upon FieldView will be demonstrated.The workflow tracks the helicopter rotor tip vortex core for quantitative comparisons while Iso-surfaces and coordinate cut planes of Q-criterion were created and saved as FieldView XDB files for qualitative comparisons. These surface extracts allow interactive viewing and direct comparisons of the predicted wakes using multi window graphical displays.

Special thanks to our partners at R Systems and Cray, Inc. for their support.
