Dinosaur-killing Asteroid

What does the U.S. Government do with its massive supercomputers?  One use is to plan visionary ways of protecting the planet from extraterrestrial threats.  No not UFOs, meteors.  To realistically consider such mind-bogglingly ambitious concepts, the scientists and engineers turn to computer simulations backed by years of careful comparisons with tests.  They perform these simulations […]

Using Transparency, Part Animation, and Keyframe Animation

Flying through a transparent car to see the normally hidden powertrain.

Using Transparency, Part Animation, and Keyframe Animation

Using POV-RAY export in EnSight Gold one can achieve additional photorealistic effects such as shadows, as shown.

Gasifier Analysis using CPFD Barracuda

Barracuda Virtual Reactor VR – CFD post-processing of gas-particle fluidized reactors simulation from EnSight by CEI Software on Vimeo. Animation of gasifier simulation. Physics from CPFD Barracuda is based off from discrete particle continuum. Here, the volume fraction of the particles within the gasifier stage are shown. Analysis and post processing done with EnSight.

New Volume Rendering Video of Flow Past a Moving Valve

Convergent Science shared with us this excellent model of a valve showing transient flow properties as the valve opens.  We visualized the data in EnSight using our Volume Rendering feature.   As you can see Volume rendering gives you a holistic view of the data in a qualitative though not quantitative way.   Volume Rendering […]
