EnSight Speaker’s Bureau

Our customers are using EnSight to design future jet cars, make boats more maneuverable, make engines more efficient, and guide doctors in the understanding of blood flow.

So we’re begging you to consider registering as a potential user meeting speaker.  Just send us an email to marketing at ensight.com.  Emailing only expresses interest – not commitment.  We often have budget to help provide travel expenses.

Past presenters:

Darren Grove from Boeing spoke in Tokyo at our Japanese EnSight Forum on the work on the North American Eagle attempt to break the world record for fastest car in an all volunteer team.

Andrew Hobbs from Astec spoke at our Japan EnSight Forum in 2016 about using EnSight visualize Fluent-EDEM coupled simulations of road making material handling.

Satish Kumar from Wood Rodger spoke at our Japan EnSight forum in 2012 about using EnSight for flooding simulation visualization.


Would you like an expense-paid trip to Japan to show of your work with EnSight?


Prometheus Engineers Improved Fire

“Communicating the results of CFD analysis is critical to a successful project and our business.  It can be difficult to explain to someone not familiar with CFD what they are looking at.  The ease with which we can change views, compare different cases side-by-side, and create animations in EnSight allows us to provide the necessary perspective to our customers for a more successful presentation.  Furthermore, the ability to use macros to format the data is invaluable for reviewing results quickly and efficiently.  ”  Emmanuella Sotiropoulou, Vice President, Engineering Prometheus Applied Technologies, LLC. Solver used was Converge from Convergent Science Inc.

Comparing Vetter-Sturtevant Shocktube Experiments

The Vetter-Sturtevant shocktube experiments:
– Two gases, air and SF6, initially separated by a membrane inside a tube, are mixed by the passage of a strong shock through the interface between them.
– Used as a test of our continuous adaptive mesh refinement code RAGE.

How can you compare different 3D simulations of these experiments?

Use EnSight and Python to perform a dimensional reduction of the 3D simulation data:
-Use Python script with EnSight to place an integration plane at positions along the tube axis oriented perpendicular to the axis.
– At each position EnSight computes the mix parameter by integration over the plane and returns the result to Python.
– In this way a 1D plot of the mix parameter vs position is generated at each time.
– 3D mix is reduced to a plot of the1D mix parameter vs position that can be compared between simulations over time.
– EnSight is used to integrate the mix parameter along the axis and plot the result over time.
– Animate everything together on the same image to study the quantitative evolution of the shock induced mixing.
