Introducing FieldView 18

FieldView 18 has arrived! Download it today from our Customer Center or view our What's New in FieldView 18 document.

FieldView 18 adds realistic rendering, reflected environments and unlimited colors to bring your results to life. Increased performance, new data readers and advances in our CFD Data Analytics capabilities make FieldView 18 the fastest, most powerful FieldView ever. ​

Bring CFD to Life

Predefined Materials Provide an Intuitive Materials Selection

Easily apply predefined material properties from the new Materials tab. No need to adjust a long list of light reflection settings. Choose between six predefined reflected environments for a realistic effect that suits your application. Then add a background image to further increase the realistic impact of your scene.

Editable Material Colors - Choose from Over 16 million Colors

Materials like glass and plastic come in various colors in real life. FieldView 18 lets you color your surfaces with a virtually unlimited pallet. Hit the color wheel icon to select from over 16 million colors. Save and reuse your favorites. There is no limit to the number of colors used per session.

Filter Bar for Boundary Types - Easily Group Boundary Conditions by Name

Type a word in the filter bar and the list of Boundary Types automatically updates. Hit Select All, then OK, and the corresponding Boundary Surface gets created. In the same way, Deselect All operates on the filtered list. The Filter Bar supports wildcards and has been designed for performance on 1,000s of entries.

Data Analytics - Intelligent Light Continues to be at the Forefront of Data Analytics Applied to CFD

FieldView 18 comes with new MATLAB/Octave scripts for querying CFD results over time, performing a POD analysis and writing the results to PLOT3D. This allows you to close the loop and visualize modes as Iso Surfaces in FieldView, as shown in this image. Save videos as individual images to run an analysis on the pixels and avoid having to resample your data.

Advancing CFD with Modal Analysis

Interest in the use of modal analysis / Reduced Order Analysis (ROA) for CFD is growing quickly. Our customers tell us that data analysis will have a huge impact and are looking for practical ways to apply it to their current work. Intelligent Light is contributing to this exciting field with an all new tutorial written by our in-house expert, Dr. Steve Makinen. Dr. Makinen is a veteran of the rotorcraft industry with extensive experience in rotorcraft aeroelasticity and coupled computational fluid/structural dynamics (CFD/CSD).

The new tutorial will allow users of FieldView 17 to explore the Data Analysis capabilities of FieldView. Step-by-step instructions provide an easy introduction to using FieldView 17 to leverage capabilities of Excel, MATLAB, Octave and NumPy. This will greatly expand the range of post-processing methods including Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) and provide a framework for users to implement other methods such as Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD). These methods can provide greater insight into simulation results and engineering design through feature identification, state-variable representation and much more.

The Data Analysis tutorial includes Octave/MATLAB programs for processing data and toolboxes for writing PLOT3D and FV-UNS files so the results can be viewed in FieldView.

I encourage you use the tutorial to become more familiar with the power of Modal Analysis for CFD. Please let us know what you think by sending an email to FieldView@ilight.com.

Live Webinar - Easy Access to CFD Data for Analysis

CFD Data Analysis with FieldView 17

LIVE Webinar

Thursday, May 3
12 noon ET (1600 GMT)

If you rely on Excel, Matlab, Octave and NumPy in your daily work, FieldView 17 allows fast I/O of CFD data for further analysis through MAT-File and CSV.

Query your CFD results at super-high speed (200,000 points/sec and more) from a list of points provided in *.mat, *.csv or plain text.

FieldView surfaces can also be exported to MAT-File and CSV to perform Reduced Order Analysis (DMD, POD, etc.), Fourier transforms and many more analyses.

Because performance matters, FieldView 17 also provides:

  • New built in Q-criterion function - easy to use and 10 X faster than previous FieldView
  • 10 X faster reading of arbitrary polyhedral cells
  • 2 X faster Surface Flow calculation
  • 40% faster reading of XDB extracts
Please join us for this live web event. If you would like to watch a recording, register now, and we will send you a note when the recording is available.

The 40 minute presentation will be followed by a live Q&A.

Altair Announces Availability of FieldView Express for the Altair Partner Alliance

 Powerful CFD Post-Processor Enriches Altair Partner Alliance Offering

FieldView Strengthens HyperWorks CFD Post Processing Automation and Design Capabilities with Reduced Cycle Times


Intelligent Light has been selected by Altair to extend their CFD post-processing capability by delivering FieldView Express, building on a relationship that already provides AcuFieldView to Altair's AcuSolve CFD users. The Partner Alliance provides on-demand FieldView Express capabilities to Altair customers performing CFD with a variety of solvers. 

"FieldView Express is designed for quick and easy activation through the Altair Partner Alliance," said Steve M. Legensky, Founder and General Manager at Intelligent Light. "We hope to enable Altair's large engineering audience with the benefits of a powerful CFD post-processor in this easy to use package. Intelligent Light is proud to join the APA, building upon our relationship with Altair through which we provide AcuFieldView for the HyperWorks® CFD code AcuSim."

With FieldView Express, it is easy to create and deliver compelling animations, visualizing your data and supporting your analyses. Videos can be saved in MP4 format, ready for use with PowerPoint or YouTube. 3D PDFs exported from FieldView Express are easily shared with clients and management and will add interactive analysis to reports and presentations. Every FieldView Express license is a parallel license and parallel processes enable faster data reads allowing users to tackle problems of greater size and fidelity than they could have attempted previously. 

"We are pleased to further extend our partnership with Intelligent Light on CFD post processing," said Stephen Cosgrove, VP of CFD Business Development at Altair. "Our customers have told us they use multiple CFD solvers to perform their work. FieldView Express with its support of multiple solver readers allows them to standardize their CFD post processing on the most powerful, solver neutral CFD post processor available. This will enable our customers to achieve a greater degree of CFD post processing automation which will allow them to engineer better designs with reduced CFD cycle times."
