  • When “Big Iron” Isn’t Big Enough
    Matthew H. Evans, Ph.D., Lockheed Martin Corporation
    Thursday, Nov. 21st, 10:20-11:00.

Intelligent Light has been nominated for an IDC HPC Innovation Excellence Award for our work with high volumes of data in a production environment.  A new whitepaper details the way FieldView data management is being used to develop high-throughput workflows that increase capacity and decrease uncertainty in CFD.

We’ve received three nominations for HPCwire Readers’ Choice Awards to be announced at SC13.

  • Best HPC visualization product or technology (FieldView)
  • Best use of HPC application in manufacturing
  • Best use of HPC in the cloud

SC13 HPC Impact Showcase – Accelerating Innovation While Reducing Risk

SC13 HPC Impact Showcase Presentationsc13

Accelerating Innovation While Reducing Risk – High Impact HPC at a Formula One Team and a Racing Bike Wheels Manufacturer

Date: Tuesday, November 19th
Time: 1:00-1:40PM, SC13 HPC Impact Showcase stage on the exhibit floor
Presenter: Steve M. Legensky, Intelligent Light

Abstract: For performance-oriented engineering organizations, high-performance computing (HPC) offers the promise of accelerating performance while reducing risk. The HPC-enabled success of two such organizations will be compared: one with large in-house HPC resources and dedicated computational fluid dynamics (CFD) engineering staff and the other a small engineering and manufacturing company producing consumer products. Common needs and different HPC strategies are discussed. These organizations depend on working with commercial software vendors to develop their capabilities and direct their investments to core skills and knowledge.

Red Bull Racing dominates Formula 1 racing with three consecutive Constructors and Drivers Championships, while Zipp Speed Weaponry has developed leading-edge products that resulted in a doubling of category revenue and 120 new manufacturing jobs for a market leader in a mature segment. The audience will see how different investment and HPC use models are producing extraordinary results and are illustrative of the path forward for innovators in many industries of any size. Through the use of HPC for CFD, these companies rapidly develop and deliver accurate, actionable information to engineers and managers through engineered CFD workflows. Each company has developed the ability to rapidly explore many ideas, put more mature designs into testing and production, and reduce the risks of exploring novel design approaches.

Among the speakers joining Mr. Legensky in The Showcase:

  • Dr. Cynthia R. McIntyre, Dr. Walter L. Kirchner (The Council on Competitiveness)
  • Dr. Mohamad S. El-Zein (Deere & Company)
  • Chris Baker, Goodyear
  • Matthew H. Evans, Ph.D., Lockheed Martin Corporation

Introduction of FieldView V14 to realize the high-speed particle visualization and multi-window display

Engineered CFD Workflows for Effective HPC Performance

Steve M. Legensky, Founder and General Manager, Intelligent Light

As core counts increase, CFD users are expecting more throughput for simulations.  However, many companies experience bottlenecks due to legacy workflows from older computing and data flow styles.  We describe how new, engineered workflows produce higher throughput without increasing hardware costs.

 

Analysis of Extreme Scale CFD Engineering Applications

Dr. Earl P.N. Duque, Manager of Applied Research, Intelligent Light

Extremely large CFD simulations require parallel and batch post-processing capabilities such as those available in FieldView. Two recent projects, analysis of a high lift transport aircraft and a wind farm simulation with 10’s of billions of grid points will be presented.

FieldView Workshop – October 9, 2013

HiLift Prediction Workshop 2 Update

I’m really excited to present my HiLift Prediction Workshop 2 results here at the AIAA Fluids Conference.  Feels great to roll up sleeves again for this project. I’ll have a Case Study that highlights what I did to post-process all these cases and then a conference paper at the 2014 AIAA Fluids Conference.
