Concept to Reality Magazine Explores CFD Workflow Automation

CFD Advances Racing Bike Performance (FieldView & AcuSolve)
Intelligent Light's multi-year collaboration with Acusim and Altair resulted in important new developments in CFD workflow design and automation.  The productivity gains allowed the study's subject matter, aerodynamic bicycle racing wheel design to be better understood than had been previously possible given the state of the art in wind tunnel testing and the limited CFD that had been applied to the problem.Concept to Reality (C2R) Magazine covers the story in the article: CFD Advances Racing Bike Performance.

Using high-fidelity modeling and truly inovative post-processing, study authors Matthew N. Godo, Ph. D.(Intelligent Light) and David Corson, Ph. D. (Altair) explored 3.6GB of steady state and 1.2TB of unsteady data from tens of thousands of calculations in days using a well engineered automated CFD workflow.

30 Billion Cells in 120 Seconds Using FieldView

Intelligent Light user Dr. Kenji Ono (Univ. of Tokyo & RIKEN) is working on a project for a Japanese automaker with the goal of turning around 10-20 high-fidelity, unsteady analyses overnight using over 10,000 HPC cores on Riken's K-Computer. The results included over 30 billion cells and over 1TB per time step and were post-processed using FieldView on a 256 processor visualization server (x86). FieldView with parallel I/O and extraction read, created an iso-surface (laplacian of P), and wrote an XDB file in 120 seconds quickly making the big data accessible and useful. The 15M polygon isosurface was explored interactively on a laptop during the VINAS User Conference in Japan.

Intelligent Light receives prestigious HPC Innovation Excellence Award from IDC

Intelligent Light receives prestigious HPC Innovation Excellence Award from IDC

Software company helps manufacturer grow business, add jobs as result of HPC success

Rutherford, NJ, November 20, 2012 - Intelligent Light has been recognized by International Data Corporation (IDC) with their HPC Innovation Excellence Award, presented at the SC12 supercomputing industry conference.  IDC acknowledged the impact of the company’s work to develop computational fluid dynamics (CFD) workflows through the study of bicycle racing wheel aerodynamics.

The HPC Innovation Excellence Award recognizes noteworthy achievements by users of high performance computing (HPC) technologies.  The program's main goals are to showcase return on investment (ROI) and scientific success stories involving HPC; to help other users better understand the benefits of adopting HPC and justify HPC investments, especially for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs); to demonstrate the value of HPC to funding bodies and politicians; and to expand public support for increased HPC investments.

Webinar: Break Through CFD Bottlenecks with Engineered Workflows

Join us for a free webinar

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has become a vital part of your engineering process.   Advances in computing on parallel clusters and cloud resources are enabling higher fidelity in meshes, unsteady calculations, and design space exploration. However, the time and resources required for post-processing huge and numerous cases have become a burden and even a bottleneck in turning out improved designs on schedule and within budget.

Steve M. Legensky, Founder and General Manager and Matthew N. Godo, PhD.,FieldView Product Manager, will show you how to implement cost-effective ‘engineered workflows’ to leverage your know how into an automated process that yields speed-ups of four to ten-fold.
