► F1 Engineer Talks Winning CFD Workflow - Live Event Tuesday
  25 Nov, 2015 

Optimized CFD Workflow a Winning Formula in Motorsports

Live Webinar - Tuesday, December 1, 2015, 10:00 EST

Please join Torbjörn Larsson from Creo Dynamics AB, and Yves-Marie Lefebvre, Intelligent Light, to learn how FieldView XDB workflow enables Formula One teams to achieve their throughput goals.


  • How F1 teams rely on automation to achieve exceptional results
  • Why traditional automated post-processing is no longer feasible
  • How FieldView XDB workflow makes success possible
  • How you can benefit from XDB workflow to get high-quality results faster, save less data and share results across your entire enterprise

Speaker Biography Torbjörn Larsson has an impressive background in aerodynamics and CFD methodology. His track record in Formula 1, most recently at Ferrari, establishes him as a preeminent CFD workflow engineer. He has been instrumental in building up the CFD department for the Sauber F1 team and has since led the CFD teams at Sauber, BMW and Ferrari to much success in Formula 1.

Mr. Larsson is a fluid dynamics and CFD methodology engineering consultant at Creo Dynamics AB, helping organizations improve the efficiency of their CFD operations.

► Using Cradle scSTREAM to Analyze Air Flow in Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment
  25 Nov, 2015 

The Hirata Corporation designs, engineers, and produces manufacturing production systems. They used Cradle scSTREAM to analyze the air flow in semiconductor wafer manufacturing equipment where the production space must be kept absolutely clean.

In this narrated interview, Takahiro Motoyama and Michitaka Matsumura from the Development Division at the Hirata Corporation discuss how Cradle scSTREAM CFD simulations were used to investigate nitrogen dispersion for preventing semiconductor wafer oxidation during transport.

► EnSight introduces EnSight MR – CFD Visualization for Mixed Reality
  23 Nov, 2015 

Apex, NC (November 23, 2015) – EnSight, the leading post-processor for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) data, is making strides into the virtual reality market. In September, EnSight launched its newest product, EnSight MR designed to work with Canon Mixed Reality (MR) headsets.

Mixed Reality is a form of virtual reality that overlays virtual images into any physical environment. Video game developers have been experimenting with using MR technology to display game elements on walls and tables. Now, with the advent of technology like the Canon MR platform, scientists and engineers can use MR headsets and CFD software to explore any complex physical scenario, including asteroids striking the earth and car accidents. This unique form of visualization is designed to help analysts better evaluate the physics of these scenarios by immersing them in the data, allowing them to see new angles and aspects of each experiment in real time.

With Canon’s Mixed Reality hardware, engineers can see their virtual models both full sized and scaled to their desktop, allowing for visualization of the model in any physical space. Users of the system can also manipulate their model using tactile input methods, eliminating the distraction of a keyboard and mouse and allowing for full immersion into the model experience. This immersive experience provides unique understanding of the simulation data, and can lead to better decision-making.

EnSight has long been the leading post-processing tool for visualizing, analyzing and communicating data from computer simulations and experiments. It is used by product engineers all over the world in industries such as automotive, aerospace, defense, energy production and high-tech manufacturing.

“EnSight MR on the Canon MREAL Platform strikes a balance between the visualization advantages of impressive, but expensive, CAVES or RAVE VR facilities and cheap 3D goggles, which simply block out the real world,” says Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Darin McKinnis. “By providing simultaneous view of the real world and the simulation results, Canon MREAL prevents nausea and disorientation common to other immersive VR systems. That’s why CEI is pleased to introduce native support for the Canon MREAL system within EnSight MR.”

CEI demonstrated the power of EnSight MR at their Japan Users Conference in Tokyo, Japan and can provide demonstrations in Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles upon request. Canon began demonstrating Canon MR at Canon Expo events in New York, Paris, Tokyo and Shanghai in September 2015.


EnSight is a visualization software program designed by, Computational Engineering International, Inc. (CEI, Inc.) in Apex, North Carolina. Founded in 1994, the employee-owned company has additional offices in Houston, Detroit, Germany, China, Japan and India. EnSight helps design engineers in aerospace, defense, combustion, energy production, and high-tech manufacturing better understand their data in environments that require precision.
