Scientific Visualization Showcase - SC12

This work was sponsored through a Phase II STTR by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and Program Manager Dr. Fariba Fabroo Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Copyright Intelligent Light ©2012

Intelligent Light's work on In-Situ Feature Tracking and Visualization  of a Temporal Mixing Layer has been accepted for publication and presentation at the SC12 conference in Salt Lake City, Utah this November.  This work was lead by Dr. Earl P.N. Duque, manager of Applied Research at Intelligent Light.

The prototype system knon as IFDT (Intelligent Feature Detection and Tracking) utilizes volume rendering with an Intelligent Adaptive Transfer Function that allows the user to train the visualization system to highlight flow features such as turbulent vortices.  A feature extractor then tracks and extracts the flow features and determines the statistics of features over time.  The method executes in-situ with the solver thus eliminating the time-consuming process saving of the data to a file before post-processing and analysis.

Advances in CFD code development recognized in NCSA Access Magazine

Intelligent Light's Applied Research Group has completed a 5-year CFD research projectfor the US Army's Vertical Lift Center of Excellence.

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) highlighted the work in their Access magazine. The project included the use of coupled Eulerian and vortex particle method codes to achieve the accuracy required to model the rotor and wake interactions. The vortex particle methods are computationally expensive and benefitted from HPC systems with GPU accelerators, a first for rotorcraft CFD code development. Read the full story.

CFD BREAKTHROUGH: Feature Detection & Direct Volume Rendering In Situ

This work was sponsored through a Phase II STTR by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and Program Manager Dr. Fariba Fabroo Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Copyright Intelligent Light ©2012

The stunning image at right was produced via prototype software developed under a Phase II STTR contract from AFOSR that utilizes volume rendering with an Adaptive Transfer Function that permits training the visualization system to highlight flow features such as turbulent vortices. A Prediction-Correction based feature extractor then tracks and extracts the flow features and determines the statistics of features over time. A Python Interface Framework permits the flow solver and feature tracker to share memory (In-Situ operation),enabling tracking at high precision and avoiding the overhead of saving data to file.

Now that the research phase is complete, Intelligent Light is seeking opportunities to apply the tools to CFD problems where understanding unsteady turbulent behavior is critical.
