"This update also enables almost every engineer to handle industrial-size data sets on their desktops," said Mike Peery, Tecplot, Inc. president and CEO. "Add that to the fact that Tecplot 360 remains the easiest CFD visualization software out there and we’re delivering what our customers have been asking for: speed, big data, and ease-of-use wrapped up into one tool."

Tecplot 360 is Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) visualization and analysis software that combines vital engineering plotting and advanced data visualization into one tool. Enhancements to the 2009 R2 version of Tecplot 360 include:

  • Faster handling, especially when working with large data sets. When benchmarked on a 16GB Linux server with 186M finite element data sets, the time to first image is 2.5 times faster; slicing data is up to two times faster; and animations are up 35% faster than the R1 version.
  • Windows 7 and HP/UX Itanium support. The R2 version has been fully tested and is compatible with Microsoft’s new operating system. Support for HP/UX running on Itanium hardware also has been added.
  • License manager support for virtualization. Those using Tecplot 360 in virtualized mission-critical work can be assured of rapid recovery in the event of server or IT disasters.

Tecplot Focus is engineering plotting software designed to help users quickly plot, analyze and present engineering and test data. Focus users who upgrade to the latest version also will enjoy faster handling with larger data sets, Windows 7 support, and license manager support for virtualization.
