New FieldView 14 Eliminates Per-Processor Software License Fees

News FieldView is designed for scalability. Every FieldView 14 license will run on 8 CPU cores per dataset and high performance computing (HPC) users can run 64 or unlimited cores at moderate additional cost, eliminating often prohibitive per-processor licensing fees.

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) data management with FieldView 14 makes it easy to work with large amounts of data that reside anywhere: on a local workstation, on-site, remote or cloud-based server without sacrificing performance. Whether your data is measured in megabytes, gigabytes or terabytes, if you are waiting for data to copy or load, you will benefit from the speed and power of FieldView.

Steve Legensky, General Manager at Intelligent Light said, “For many it is fast becoming a game of survival to expand their knowledge base and to make better design decisions many times faster than ever before. They utilize simulation and expertise to extend and sustain competitive advantage, or risk sacrificing their ability to compete at the profitable leadership position in product development. FieldView has evolved over many years to allow users to meet this challenge and users are leaving many of their traditional, large data limitations behind. Our services team is designing and delivering highly productive engineered workflows that capture organizational expertise, automating existing processes and tools.”

Engineering-driven organizations excel when many ideas are created and explored, design-risk is managed, and design cycles are short. HPC is facilitating the rapid generation of large volumes of CFD results data. For many, this has led to post-processing becoming a critical workflow bottleneck that prevents all these results from being evaluated. FieldView 14 removes the post-processing bottleneck from high-performance CFD workflows. Engineering leaders are using CFD simulation supported by HPC and engineered FieldView workflows that deliver actionable information sooner and free of expensive software cost penalties when using scalable computing.

Engineers Should Develop Designs and Processes, Not Limit Scope of Exploration

Leaders are quickly moving beyond traditional CFD and are utilizing FieldView in workflows that continually test many ideas through high-fidelity, time dependent simulations. The resulting data is rapidly processed at the source, relevant attributes isolated, and information needed to turn data into knowledge is delivered to engineers. HPC capacity is leveraged to explore vastly broadened design spaces.

FieldView 14 allows engineers to spend their time on the most important work exploiting trusted data to make informed engineering decisions. Intelligent Light is helping transform enterprises from those that are CFD knowledge rich to small engineering firms exploiting HPC enabled CFD.

“The parallel processing and data extract capabilities in FieldView 14 allowed me to run all the required and optional cases for the 2nd AIAA high Lift Prediction Workshop and deliver the required two-dimensional plotting data like force moments, velocity provides and surface pressures,” said Earl P. N. Duque, Ph. D., Manager of Applied Research at Intelligent Light. “Early on I realized that I didn’t have to limit the number of cases I ran. I had enough computer time to create the solutions if I could avoid a bottleneck sifting through the large data files. FieldView automation and data management allowed me to use the HPC resources to not only run the simulations but also extract out the plot information for all the cases.”

Intelligent Light has received a nomination for an IDC HPC Innovation Excellence Award for work with large data management and received three nominations for HPCwire Readers’ Choice Awards for contributions to the effective and affordable use of HPC for CFD, including FieldView 14.

“CFD data management and effective engineered workflows are making it possible for organizations large and small to use HPC capability to run detailed and thorough design studies to reduce uncertainty and risk to meet the criteria accepted for physical testing, ” commented Legensky. “The speed and productivity of HPC enabled CFD are providing leading organizations with a tremendous acceleration in their design cycle and ability to explore design alternatives.”
