A new CONVERGE HDF5 loader reads CONVERGE 3.0 post*.h5 files directly without having to first convert them using post_convert. This saves significant time and cuts disk space requirements in half for Tecplot 360 and Tecplot for CONVERGE users.
The Tecplot OpenFOAM data loader has increased performance and improved usability. Engineers using FUN3D and SU2 open source codes with the TecIO-MPI Library will see write speeds that are up to 15 times faster. The TecIO library allows third-party applications to read and write Tecplot file format. TecIO-MPI supports parallel writing of data.
Tecplot continues to expand its support of the geoscience community with addition of the TELEMAC loader to the list of Tecplot 360-compatible file formats. Loaders for ROMS and WRF are still in Beta form and are available upon request by contacting Tecplot Support at email@example.com.
“It may not sound wildly exciting, but these improvements to our data loaders can make a huge difference to customers in product development and research who are reading and writing large amounts of data,” says Scott Fowler, Tecplot 360 Product Manager. “And another seemingly small but significant highlight is the release of PyTecplot 1.0, which means backward compatibility will be guaranteed for all documented APIs.”
Tecplot 360 2019 Release 1 is available for download as Free Trial Software, or for customers through the MyTecplot Customer Portal.
