Intelligent Light will participate in the 21st Annual Conference of the CFD Society of Canada to be held May 6-8 in Sherbrooke, Quebec.
On Wednesday, FieldView Product Manager, Matthew N. Godo, Ph. D. will lead a 30-minute demonstration of FieldView. See just how capable and accessible CFD can be. The demonstration will be performed the latest FieldView release, now in beta testing. See what the early users are so excited about!
Then, in the main sessions, Dr. Godo will present “On the Aerodynamics of Racing Bicycles” , a peer reviewed study in efficient CFD workflows for production environments. The presentation shares the lessons learned in working with a small manufacturer to deliver high-performance CFD for use by an existing engineering team. Early results lead to tremendous productivity, expanded design exploration, and more good new ideas. The company product doubled revenue and added 120 new manufacturing jobs to meet the new demand for a great product. They added no new engineering or IT staff but are working with state of the art tools and workflow design.
If you will be at CFD Canada, don’t miss Dr. Godo’s presentations.
CFD for the Rest of Us – Digital Manufacturing Report explains how the latest CFD capabilities and services are helping small-medium sized manufacturers (SMMs) succeed with affordable, high-productivity CFD.
The coming of age for CFD simulation for small and medium sized manufacturers (SMMs) is finally a reality. The story shows how the HPC-enabled CFD gap is bridged between large, established CFD users, and the smaller companies who have long seen limited success with sophisticated simulation-driven design. Intelligent Light has been recognized for its ability to bring together the necessary elements to quickly make these organizations successful without major new capital projects or hiring new engineering staff from outside their industry.

Intelligent Light’s multi-year collaboration with Acusim and Altair resulted in important new developments in CFD workflow design and automation. The productivity gains allowed the study’s subject matter, aerodynamic bicycle racing wheel design to be better understood than had been previously possible given the state of the art in wind tunnel testing and the limited CFD that had been applied to the problem.Concept to Reality (C2R) Magazine covers the story in the article: CFD Advances Racing Bike Performance.
Using high-fidelity modeling and truly inovative post-processing, study authors Matthew N. Godo, Ph. D.(Intelligent Light) and David Corson, Ph. D. (Altair) explored 3.6GB of steady state and 1.2TB of unsteady data from tens of thousands of calculations in days using a well engineered automated CFD workflow.
Intelligent Light user Dr. Kenji Ono (Univ. of Tokyo & RIKEN) is working on a project for a Japanese automaker with the goal of turning around 10-20 high-fidelity, unsteady analyses overnight using over 10,000 HPC cores on Riken’s K-Computer. The results included over 30 billion cells and over 1TB per time step and were post-processed using FieldView on a 256 processor visualization server (x86). FieldView with parallel I/O and extraction read, created an iso-surface (laplacian of P), and wrote an XDB file in 120 seconds quickly making the big data accessible and useful. The 15M polygon isosurface was explored interactively on a laptop during the VINAS User Conference in Japan.
Intelligent Light receives prestigious HPC Innovation Excellence Award from IDC
Software company helps manufacturer grow business, add jobs as result of HPC success
Rutherford, NJ, November 20, 2012 – Intelligent Light has been recognized by International Data Corporation (IDC) with their HPC Innovation Excellence Award, presented at the SC12 supercomputing industry conference. IDC acknowledged the impact of the company’s work to develop computational fluid dynamics (CFD) workflows through the study of bicycle racing wheel aerodynamics.
The HPC Innovation Excellence Award recognizes noteworthy achievements by users of high performance computing (HPC) technologies. The program’s main goals are to showcase return on investment (ROI) and scientific success stories involving HPC; to help other users better understand the benefits of adopting HPC and justify HPC investments, especially for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs); to demonstrate the value of HPC to funding bodies and politicians; and to expand public support for increased HPC investments.
