Announcements Intelligent Light with present the live webinar 45 Seconds of CFD @ 60Hz with XDB workflow on Thursday, May 21, 2015 at 12:00 Noon, EDT.

A Big CFD Challenge: Landing in a Ship Airwake
The CREATE™–AV team and Intelligent Light tackle 45 seconds of flight time with unique in situ XDB workflow.

Sponsor CFD Review

The high temporal fidelity of 45 seconds at 60 files per second meant that an innovative approach would be needed to handle the data. The CREATE–AV team reached out to Intelligent Light for help. The unique workflow combined libsim and FieldView XDBs (extracts) to enable detailed animations that gave physical insight in hours rather than days.

With a goal of improved pilot training for sea-based aircraft operations, the CREATE–AV team took on the task of coupling CREATE–AV Kestrel to the Navy flight simulator CASTLE. This two-way coupling might lead to better simulation of a difficult landing environment.

You will learn:

  • Benefits of in situ post-processing
  • Basics of implementing an in situ workflow
  • How to utilize XDB extracts that are 10 to 1,000X smaller than solution data
