News ONERA, the French aerospace research company, has purchased 20 licenses of CEI's EnSight Gold software. The sale was made by Distene, CEI's EnSight distributor for Southern Europe. With the latest purchase, ONERA owns 31 EnSight licenses.

"ONERA chose EnSight Gold because of its superior capability to visualize generalized unstructured n-faced meshes, analyze large 3D unsteady flow solutions, as well as merge results and post-process on one screen," says François Vuillot, assistant director, CFD and Aeroacoustics Department for ONERA. "EnSight also enables us to unify with one tool the visualization of multi-physics simulations such as aeroacoustics and those obtained from coupling flow and solid mechanics solvers."
