The AIAA SciTech Conference 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 product, our work with VisIt as well as presentations from our research partners and staff.
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:
- Kenneth Moreland,Computation, Computers, Information and Mathematics
- Center, Sandia National Laboratories
- Kenneth “Mark” Bryden, Program Director, Simulation, Modeling, and Decision Science, Ames Laboratory
- Andrew W. Cary, Technical Fellow – CFD, The Boeing Company
- David McDaniel, DoD CREATE/Kestrel Development Team, University of Alabama at Birmingham
- Steve M. Legensky, General Manager and Founder, Intelligent Light

On January 22, 2014, Intelligent Light and Cray delivered a new webinar showcasing real world workflows that eliminate post-processing bottlenecks with massive CFD data.
The archive for this webinar is now available here.
CFD is a crucial engineering strength at Infiniti Red Bull Racing where over 80% of their aerodynamic design work is driven by CFD. CFD Team Leader, Nathan Sykes talks about where the challenges and achievements of his team using FieldView and automated CFD post-processing.
Infiniti Red Bull Formula 1 – An elite team in Formula 1 Racing
After claiming the Constructor’s and Driver’s Championship for four straight years, the Red Bull’s are a favorite at every race they contest.
Domination in 2013:
- Red Bull’s 596 total points was well clear of Mercedes’ 360 and Ferrari’s 354 points
- Vettel’s total of 13 wins during the season puts him alongside Michael Schumacher as joint holder of the record for most wins in a single campaign.
- 13 additional podiums
- Red Bull finished the season with 9 consecutive wins and a fourth 1-2 finish at the final race.
A team built upon great engineering and great driving brings the fastest cars on the track that were designed with heavy use of CFD and a model high-productivity workflow. We are proud of our association with the Infinity Red Bull Racing team and all they have accomplished using FieldView for their CFD post-processing. Learn more about how high-productivity CFD using FieldView is helping Red Bull continue to stay on top!
IDC recognized Intelligent Light during SC13 in Denver, CO for the use of HPC to generate and analyze vast amounts of CFD without workflow limitations using readily available, standard software and hardware.
The approach allowed hundreds of cases and terabytes of data to be evaluated and utilized under a restrictive schedule using:
- CFD Data Management using tools in FieldView
- Engineered CFD workflows by Intelligent Light
- HPC on remote Cray XE6
Intelligent Light addressed the challenge of high volumes of CFD data using FieldView 14 data management and process automation tools. Intelligent Light contributed results from approximately 100 cases with more than 10,000 time steps each to deliver a complete response to the workshop objectives. A Cray XE6 was used to generate the CFD solutions and perform much of the post-processing. Terabytes of data were created, evaluated, and compared to experimental data by a single researcher working part-time. This project successfully demonstrated the value and practicality of using innovative workflow engineering with automation and data management for complex CFD studies.
