Dr. Earl Duque, Intelligent Light’s manager or applied research and Overflow expert is presenting a tutorial at the Overset Grids Symposium.
Whitepaper: Tips and Tricks for Post-Processing OVERFLOW Results using FieldView 13
Synopsis: As an OVERFLOW and FieldView user for several years, I’d like to share with you several methods I’ve used for getting my work done in a more efficient manner. With the most recent version, FieldView 13, you’ll find new features and workflows that will benefit your work. From reading your data more completely using the new OVERFLOW direct reader to using our XDB technology to reduce your saved data, I’m sure you may find that at least one of the “Tips and Tricks” contained in this talk will be useful to your daily work.

Three of Asia’s most significant contributors to aerospace CFD were celebrated recently at the International Workshop on the Future of CFD and Aerospace Sciences in Kobe, Japan. Held at the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science, site of the K Computer, the invitation-only workshop recognized Professors Kozo Fujii (JAXA ISAS), Kazuhiro Nakahashi (Tohoku University/JAXA) and Jaw-Wen Yang (National Taiwan University). Intelligent Light’s Founder and General Manager, Steve M. Legensky was an invited speaker and spoke about milestones in CFD and some of the impacts on our own products that this community has had.

Demonstrating the value of HPC for small organizations, Intelligent Light Founder and GM, Steve M. Legensky will be an invited speaker at this conference of the National High Performance Computer and Communications Council. The presentation is titled “HPC, Data Management and Racing Bicycle Wheels”
Over the past few years, Intelligent Light, has been collaborating with Zipp Speed Weaponry, one of the leading manufacturers of bicycle components for professional and amateur racing. This is a story of two ‘missing middle’ successes: of Intelligent Light seeking experience and inspiration to advance its FieldView Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) products for an HPC-centric engineering world and of Zipp, looking to engineer the most competitive products for their customers. The intersection: using CFD simulation at a very high technical level to understand and optimize a product from a small, US manufacturer. Employing parallel computing on a remote HPC system to perform unsteady CFD calculations yields large quantities of numerical results. Post-processing the terabytes of disk file data in an effective manner requires a new paradigm for CFD data management. Intelligent Light has delivered such a capability via parallel batch processing and extract databases which are compact, efficient and completely loss-less. These tools reduce file size and processing time by one to three orders of magnitude over current methods. The results for Zipp are equally impressive: to quote the July 2011 issue of Tour Magazine, “The sensation: the fastest spoke wheel ever. Aerodynamically a revelation and out in front at all speeds.” The story continues…

Legensky to Deliver Masterworks Presentation on HPC in Wind Energy at SC09 Conference
As the technology world turns its attention to the many facets of supercomputing at the SC09 conference in Portland this week, Intelligent Light, developer of the industry-leading computational fluid dynamics (CFD) post-processing FieldView™ software, is helping engineers, designers, and researchers reap the benefits of today’s high performance computing (HPC) resources every day in real world applications.
Advances in HPC are significantly expanding the size of data that can be collected, allowing a dramatic increase in the realism and complexity of simulations. But in order for scientists, researchers, and engineers to get the answers they need from these massive datasets, the applications running on these super systems have to keep pace.
“Big data is just getting bigger,” says Steve Legensky, Intelligent Light general manager. “Leveraging that information, being able to efficiently extract meaningful results, requires tools and processes that can manage complexity and ensure productivity. We want all CFD users, whether in small companies or large corporate engineering environments, to be able to harness the power of their available computing resources, break through bottlenecks, and interrogate any size dataset with FieldView. Its intuitive, user-friendly interface, speed, and power have made FieldView the choice of thousands.” Read more
In recognition of significant contributions to CFD in aerospace engineering, Steve M. Legensky, general manager and founder of Intelligent Light, a New Jersey-based software company, has been named an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). The honor is given annually to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the “arts, sciences, or technology of aeronautics or astronautics.”
