EPISODE: A new user interface to automatically Extract, Reduce and Sort Large CFD Parametric Studies

by Earl Duque | July 9, 2014 2:04 pm

Intelligent Light R&D continues to produce new tools for large scale CFDParametric Studies. EPISODE is a new large scale data management tool that enables an engineer to readily extract knowledge and insight from their large scale physics based simulations and experimental data. EPISODE provides tools that enable the user to create a relevant subset of their solution results via in-situ data extraction at regions of interest, further reduce the size of that data via proper orthogonal decomposition (POD), and then sort the parametric space of both the input and output solver parameters using self organizing maps (SOMs).

 

This project consists of new data extracts and compression methods based upon POD (proper orthogonal decomposition) and image compression methods such as JPEG. In addition, we’re developing a new UI based upon self organizing maps  which will automatically sort a large number of simulations based upon the parametric inputs and outputs. The result is a set of colored maps that helps to determine the trends in the data.  The user will be able to click on different areas of the map which will then display the results in FieldView. The results may be directly from the CFD solver, reconstructed from the POD or it may be computed from a reduced order model (ROM) that was derived from the CFD and POD results.

 

The EPISODE project will address limitations of current data analysis tools by:

Introducing: Yves-Marie Lefebvre, FieldView Product Chief

by Roger Rintala | July 8, 2014 7:00 am

Yves-Marie Lefebvre Named FieldView Product Chief

[1]In the new role of FieldView Product Chief, it is Yves-Marie’s objective to represent our customer’s within Intelligent Light, increase the responsiveness of our product development, and provide customer-driven direction to future product planning.  The new role also puts Yves-Marie in charge of our growing FieldView Support Team.

Intelligent Light has transitioned to a new agile development process in which customer support is an integral part.  Placing both the product direction and support team under Yves-Marie gives our customers an effective advocate and someone they can speak directly with as product development strives to meet their emerging needs.

Yves-Marie has been involved in FieldView sales and support for over 13 years, training users on three continents and working as an embedded consultant implementing high performance CFD workflows.  His engineering experience, knowledge gained supporting users, and demonstrated commitment to the success of our FieldView customers will increase the responsiveness to our customers in both product development and support.

Turbo Expo ’14

by Roger Rintala | July 7, 2014 6:00 am

Turbo Expo 2014

Intelligent Light looks forward to our participation at Turbo Expo every year.  This high-quality conference and exhibition brings together many of the leaders working on Turbomachinery projects.

We recognized several themes at the 2014 Turbo Expo in Dusseldorf, Germany. Two themes were especially common:

  1. Transient data presents workflow difficulties due to the size and complexity of turbo data. The challenges are present with commercial, in-house, and open source solvers. — The use of FieldView XDB files for data management with transient data is increasing and interest is strong.  Users wish to generate the XDB files both interactively and automatically in batch.  The interactive performance of FieldView with transient datasets continues to open possibilities for analysts with turbo data.
  2. Automated batch processing[1] is important and reliability is often an issue. — The reliability of FieldView for batch, parallel performance, and full backward compatibility generated excitement among these CFD practitioners.

As always, the event was a great opportunity to meet with our user community in attendance and collect valuable feedback that will drive our accelerated FieldView feature development.  Great requests from users working with gas turbines[2], marine applications[3], engine development for aerospace[4], and more.

If you missed us at Turbo Expo, we’d still like to discuss your CFD challenges.  Contact Us.[5]
