I was pleased to meet with the Concordia University Team at the the SAE World Congress in Detroit. This photos was taken a the event (I’m on the right) with the newly unveiled vehicle and team members.
IL sponsors the team through our University Partners Program and the team uses FieldView to gain meaningful insights from their CFD analysis.
Good luck to the Concordia SAE Supermileage Team!

The Concordia University team is busy finalizing their design, paper submission, and preparation for the SAE Supermileage Competition to be held June 5-6, 2014.
The team is pursuing both simulation and physical testing, correlating results, and committing parts to manufacturing. All the components are fabricated by the team members.
Good luck to the entire team! Stay tuned for updates and to see the vehicle after the unveiling!

Formula 1 is being transformed by major rule changes in 2014. Our friends at Infiniti Red Bull Racing have produced a beautiful and compelling video to explain the changes for fans of engineering and racing.
For the Infiniti Red Bull Formula 1 team, the new RB10 will carry the hopes of Infiniti Red Bull Racing as they take on the new season and all the new rule changes for 2014.
Four-time Formula 1 Champion Sebastian Vettel will pilot the RB10 as will his new teammate, Daniel Ricciardo. New driver Daniel Ricciardo has already proven he has the skills to compete alongside Vettel at the top of the sport. Take a ride with the drivers as they explain the major changes for the RB10.
2014 brings huge changes including:

Three of last year’s top four F1 teams use FieldView to rapidly exploit mountains of CFD data to support critical design decisions from thermal and aerodynamic studies.
With the first races of the new season now in the books, it is clear that the sport’s most dramatic single season rule changes will have a huge impact on the racing this season.
For the Infiniti Red Bull Formula 1 team, the new RB10 will carry the hopes of Infiniti Red Bull Racing as they take on the new season and all the new rule changes for 2014. Four-time Formula 1 Champion Sebastian Vettel will pilot the RB10 as will his new teammate, Daniel Ricciardo. The Bulls will have to shore up the reliability of the new cars and dial in fuel consumption before the next race, but new driver Daniel Ricciardo has already proven he has the skills to compete.

An Innovative Transient Post-Processing Approach for a Full Car Thermal Validation Study
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.
