► Intelligent Light and the CFD 2030 Vision - Live presentation at NASA
  15 Aug, 2017 

Intelligent Light's Steve M. Legensky and Brad J. Whitlock will present:

Intelligent Light and the CFD 2030 Vision

Live from NASA Ames Research Center
1:00 PM PT, THURSDAY, August 17, 2017

Over the past thirty years, computational simulation of fluid dynamics has made huge strides in meshing of complex geometries, computational efficiency and most importantly, greater fidelity in physics models. Current trends include greater adoption of unsteady methods via LES, higher order methods and alternatives to classical CFD such as Lattice Boltzmann methods. However, the majority of engineering applications remain constrained by computational and storage resources as well as schedule and time pressure. The CFD 2030 Vision highlights the need for improved Knowledge Extraction and Data Management tools that address the scale and fidelity of exascale class problems. Perhaps most interesting, these tools will enable non-deterministic engineering (NDE) in which variations in boundary conditions, discretization and models can more realistically predict the behavior of complex aerodynamic, propulsion or power generation systems.

This talk highlights recent activities at Intelligent Light that include how to manage the massive data flows resulting from ensembles of unsteady CFD calculations, new tools that support engineering use of uncertainty quantification techniques and the latest HPC-FieldView software that combines the familiar interface of FieldView with the scalability of VisIt. Through the lens of post-processing and data analysis, we have gained a unique perspective on research and engineering use of CFD from the late 1980's through today. The talk touches on this history while giving examples of state-of-the-art petascale CFD and surveys the challenges that exascale computing is intended to address.

Speakers:

Steve M. Legensky - Founder and General Manager of Intelligent Light

Brad J. Whitlock – Visualization and Post-Processing Engineer

► Role of CFD in designing efficient fuel injection systems
  14 Aug, 2017 

Role of CFD in designing efficient fuel injection systems

Driven by the need for more cleaner, environment friendly vehicles to abide by stricter government regulations, it is imperative for automakers worldwide to make cars more fuel efficient and less polluting. Auto companies are forced to embrace the concept of “downsizing” – building increasingly small, compact, yet powerful engines

Technology has taken giant strides in the last 10 years in making GDI technology better and efficient, however there is still a large scope for further improvement. Not everything is understood and decoded as to what actually happens inside the GDI based combustion process, eluding the goal of achieving complete control over the successive events inside the combustion chamber.

Progress in GDI technology is at an advanced state with injectors from companies like Bosch, Continental , Delphi , Denso, etc, designing for worldwide use for different fuel qualities.

The meshing requirements of these tiny yet complex configurations are quite unique and challenging. The configuration demands a fine mesh with sizes going down to a few microns, to resolve the geometry and the associated flow physics. Researchers usually make use of Cartesian and Structured multi-block grids to discretize the flow domain. While Cartesian grids help in quickly generating unit aspect ratio mesh in no time, structured grids come in handy in generating optimized high aspect ratio grids. CFD will continue to play a pivotal role in designing cleaner and more fuel efficient engines.

GridPro, has automated the meshing for fuel injectors needle motions. To read more click here.
