“Yves-Marie Lefebvre, FieldView
Product Chief, with members of the Concordia SAE Racing Team, at the SAE 2014 World
Congress.

I was pleased to meet with the Concordia University Team at the the SAE World Congress in Detroit.  This photos was taken a the event (I’m on the right) with the newly unveiled vehicle and team members.

IL sponsors the team through our University Partners Program and the team uses FieldView to gain meaningful insights from their CFD analysis.

Good luck to the Concordia SAE Supermileage Team!

Transient Post-Processing for a Full Car Thermal Validation Study

An Innovative Transient Post-Processing Approach for a Full Car Thermal Validation Study

Full car CFD simulation using STAR-CCM+ solutions. FieldView post-processing enables large scale transient cases to be productively analyzed.  To be presented at the 2014 STAR Global Conference.

STAR-CCM+ and FieldView have been used, through an extract based post-processing workflow, to analyze a very large transient simulation case. This method not only allowed monitoring of simulation results over time, such as the maximum temperature of thousands of car parts and their comparison with the critical temperature of each material, but also allowed investigation of transient phenomena interactively in order to gain better understanding. To our knowledge, this work is unprecedented in the automotive industry.

Intelligent Light is proud of our partnership with CD-adapco. At the 2014 STAR Global Conference,  Yves-Marie Lefebvre, FieldView Product Chief, shared leading edge techniques and capabilities developed from our work with CD-adapco and leaders in automotive engineering.  The presentation demonstrated just how much CFD data can be efficiently created and utilized, compressing analysis cycles and delivering value from large scale, unsteady STAR-CCM+ simulations.
