Preview: Next Generation CFX-5 Post Processor
Posted Wed May 09, 2001 @03:28PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Registered CFX users can test a preview release of CFX-Post, the latest post processing software from AEA Technology.
A good post-processing tool should not only provide the user with qualitative flow visualisation, but also the means to extract quantitative data for performance comparison.

... As problem sizes continue to increase, post-processing technology must keep pace. CFX-Post employs efficient storage and graphics algorithms to optimise the use of computer resources. It has also been designed to accommodate a range of future needs and will be extensible to parallel post-processing and collaborative visualisation.

With qualitative, quantitative, parallel, and collaborative capabilities in work, or planned, this post-processor sounds powerful.

This opens the topic of whether pre- and post-processing software should come from the flow solver vendor. There are obvious advantages to having a pre- or post-processor tailored for a particular flow solver, but do the flow solver vendors have the expertise of third-party pre- and post-processor vendors in these areas? What happens if you choose to switch flow solvers? Or use more than one? Are the flow solver vendors forced to develop their own pre- and post-processing solutions because their clients demand a single-source solution?

Tech Report: Overflow Solver Performance on 512 CPU Origin
Posted Tue May 08, 2001 @04:32PM

Solver The researchers at NASA Ames have developed a new highly-scalable parallelism technique for use with the Overflow CFD code. The new method, termed Multi-Level Parallelism (MLP), was designed to be simpler and more scalable than MPI. MLP was specifically designed for the new large CPU count shared memory systems.

Building on their success with Overflow, a Chimera grid based CFD solver, on a 256 CPU SGI Origin 2000, the Ames team applied the code to a new 512 processor Origin 2000.

2001 - A CFD Odyssey
Posted Mon May 07, 2001 @04:58PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements Or is it oddity? ;-) The CFD Society of Canada, in conjunction with University of Waterloo, is hosting CFD2001 from May 27-29 in Kitchener, Ontario.
At the turn of the millennium, the application of CFD has reached a new frontier. CFD technology is now more potent and affordable with the seemingly endless increase in inexpensive computational power. Because of this, CFD has become a household design tool for many different industries at many different levels. CFD 2001 is a golden opportunity for academics, developers, and industries to join hands and forge new paths on this exciting odyssey.
The conference includes free seminars by AEA Technology and Fluent (as if you needed further incentive to visit Canada in May).

CEI Adds Feature Extraction to EnSight Product
Posted Fri May 04, 2001 @11:35AM

Post Processing CEI has broadened the capabilities of it's base level post processor by adding flow field feature extraction, previously only available in their EnSight Gold software.
"Our customers told us that flow-feature extraction is important for all kinds of CFD visualizations, not just the extremely large problems handled by EnSight Gold," says Kent Misegades. "Now, all EnSight users can automatically visualize and animate those factors that most impact the integrity of their designs."
