FIELDVIEW 11 Released With New Productivity and Capability Tools

News Intelligent Light has released the FIELDVIEW 11 post-processor with new productivity and capability features including the FIELDVIEW Advanced Technology Viewer tool.

The reveloutionary new FIELDVIEW ATViewer, new 64-bit ports and dynamic clipping capability are all new to this release.

FIELDVIEW Advanced Technology Viewer (ATViewer) is a revolutionary new capability that utilizes the latest graphics technologies to deliver tremendous interactive performance even with large, unsteady datasets. Now the largest CFD datasets with hundred of thousands of streaklines can be explored at fully interactive frame rates.

The FIELDVIEW ATViewer software uses an extract database created by FIELDVIEW that can be much smaller than the native dataset. The extract database contains all surfaces, rakes and relevant scalar, thresholding, and vector data allowing detailed, interactive analysis of steady and transient datasets using a local workstation. Analysis results can be shared among users and non-users of the FIELDVIEW post-processor using the free FIELDVIEW ATViewer software to review results.

"I was amazed when I started working with our data using the FIELDVIEW ATViewer software. To see moving flows and to interact with the data at 15-20 frames per second (fps) is a fundamental change in the way we can work", said Dr. Earl Duque, leader of the Intelligent Light response to the HPC Analytics Challenge and Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Northern Arizona University. "I have been able to quickly see the development of unique airflows that affect the efficiency of rotor turbines. This has huge implications for the development of highly efficient wind energy, and more broadly, for the way that CFD is practiced and the impact it can have beyond the CFD community."

Dynamic Clipping - Quickly clear model detail to reveal airflows in specific areas of interest. Simple mouse click and draw commands are used to interactively cut away parts of the model to see beyond obstructions or inside. Multiple cuts can be made using lines or boxes to pare away some parts of the model to easily expose the most relevant part of the dataset. For example, dynamically clipping away parts of a Formula 1 race car model to isolate an area of interest such as the front wing may require as little as a single simple mouse click and drag action. Dynamic clipping is fully integrated with the quantitative features of FIELDVIEW and with FVX for automation.
