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.

AIAA SciTech Conference 2014

by Roger Rintala | January 10, 2014 5:16 pm

scit14_comp[1] The AIAA SciTech Conference[2] is the most important technical conference of the year for many of our aerospace customers. The conference drew nearly 3,000 participants to share their work and seek answers to the challenges they face.  Intelligent Light shared updates on FieldView 14[3] product, our work with VisI[4]t[5] as well as presentations from our research partners and staff[6].

 

A special customer dinner included a custom briefing and offered customers the opportunity to share ideas with us and with each other.

 

The AIAA SciTech Conference included a special panel discussion on January 14, 2014.  Current Status and Future Trends of Integrated Computational Environments was Chaired by Greg Power of the Aerospace Testing Alliance.

 

5 panelists participated in the discussion:

AIAA SciTech 2014 – Intelligent Light Presentations

by Roger Rintala | January 10, 2014 11:37 am

AIAA SciTech 2014 logo[1]Visit us at AIAA SciTech Meeting.  January 14-16, 2014 in National Harbor, MD.

 

Intelligent Light will be at the event participating in the technical conference and the exhibition.  Come see us at the exhibit hall entrance (booth 402) and explore how we can help you get more done with your CFD.

 

We will host several presentations in our booth:

 

Wind Farm simulations using a Full Rotor Model for Wind Turbines

Intelligent Light’s Earl P. N. Duque collaborated with J. Sitaraman and D. Mavriplis (University of Wyoming).  This is a part of the Wind Farm and Turbine-Wake Interaction II Session on Wednesday, January 15, 2014, 2:00pm.

 

Current Status and Future Trends of Integrated Computational Environments

Intelligent Light Founder and General Manager Steve Legensky will be a member on this panel session of the AIAA Meshing Visualization and Computational Environments (MVCE) Technical Committee. January 14, 2014, 2:30pm.

 

If you would like to meet with any of our staff, please come by the booth!

SC13 – Intelligent Light’s Role in HPC for CFD Recognized

by Media | October 24, 2013 12:03 am

sc13[1]Intelligent Light has been selected to participate in the new HPC Impact Showcase[2] at SC13.  The HPC Impact Showcase brings real world applications of HPC that make a difference in shaping our world.  The showcase presentations take place on the exhibit floor.

Presentations include:

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[6] Readers’ Choice Awards to be announced at SC13.
