EnSight Used for RAVE Visualization Lab

Post Processing NASA Glenn Research Center has installed EnSight Gold high-end visualization software, from CEI, on Fakespace's RAVE VR system. The system will be used to study the results from turbomachinery analyses including combustion and turbine blade failure.

The RAVE (Reconfigurable Advanced Visualization Environment) consists of 3 8 foot by 8 foot rear-projection screens which can be configured as an 8x24 wall, or as a three-wall immersive environment.

"With EnSight Gold on the RAVE, a detailed model of an intricate structure with many components, such as a jet engine, can be viewed from all angles and diverse vantage points," says Jay Horowitz, visualization manager at NASA Glenn. "We can now bring our data visualizations more 'out of the screen' than before. It is surprising how much better you can understand complex phenomena when you have more control over how you view it."
