Due to the size of these large, complex, transient solutions, a shift towards co-processing technology is required. CEI will research adapting it's high performance and flexible EnSight post processing system for the purpose of co-processing these large and complex simulations.
Under the SBIR, CEI will investigate the feasibility of periodically reviewing results as the solver computes them, which may require days or even weeks of processing time.
Mark Potsdam, Aerospace Engineer with the US Army, AFDD, and project manager of the SBIR Phase I award said, “The US Army Aeroflightdynamics Directorate is looking forward to working with CEI to significantly enhance our CFD post-processing capabilities. The co-processing capabilities that CEI will develop and demonstrate in this SBIR will drastically reduce the manpower and time required to visualize large-scale, time-dependent rotorcraft CFD datasets.”
“CEI is always looking for new challenges that we can apply our expertise and current technology towards solving. I am confident that we will find and propose a robust and high performance solution to the U.S. Army under the Phase I SBIR,” said Anders Grimsrud, president of CEI.
CEI offers a suite of engineering and scientific visualization tools, from plotting to animation, on all major operating systems. The company’s products can be run on everything from laptops to workstations, clusters and supercomputers, with animations displayed in stereo and in immersive VR. CEI has corporate headquarters in Apex, N.C., and authorized distributors around the world.
