Why EnSight for FLOW-3D users? Ease of Transient Analysis, maintaining interactive post processing whilein time domain. Dynamic and interactive post processing with dynamic clip planes, iso-surfaces, streamlines, pathlines, automatic label updates. Integrated graphs within the 3D scene Superior Calculator function with predefined functions as well as usercustom defined functions. Calculate new spatial, temporal, or statistically variables. Multiple cases read into a single EnSight Session. Up to 16 32 different cases from same/different solvers together Keyframe animation, camera control for viewports Remote server post-processing by using Client-server architecture. Texture maps to imprint GIS or experimental data onto the scene Batch or interactive post-processing, use Python to build dialoguedtools or scripted logic More..…..
Standard FLOW-3D Reader Direct reading of FLOW-3D result files. Directly read both thestandard “flsgrf” files, or.fgz compressed files Options to control particletracking imports, ghostelement treatment, timecontrol, and STLautomatic import.
Parallel FLOW-3D/MP reader For the new FLOW-3D/MP users outthere, EnSight’s directreader handles that aswell Just specify theflsgrf1.<extension> file inthe reader. EnSight picks up on all ofthe flsgrfN.<extension>files, and presents theuser with the singleunified dataset.
STL Information? For those wanting to includetheir STL representationwithin thevisualization, EnSight’sdirect reader has that builtright into the FLOW-3Dreader… Just specify that you’d liketo read in the internal STL EnSight will automaticallyload in STL. Works well with GMOmodels
FLOW-3D Reader Wizard FLOW-3D Reader Wizard prompts you for the flsgrffile, any particles or STL data, and then takes over fromthere. Key surfaces of cell volume fraction are automaticallycreated The fluid surface is automatically created and colored byPressure Labels are automatically created.You automatically get to thispoint without having to doanything other than specify theflsgrf file…
Remote Data? Leave it there.. EnSight works on a client-server architecture that distributes theworkloads between the client and one or more servers – thisarchitecture leaves the data where it was computed The GUI and graphics are handled by the Client; the Server takescare of all data and the data extraction algorithms; the Server can belocal or remoteClient (GUI & all graphics)Server (cluster): alldata, extraction algorithms; localor remote, SMP or DMP
Extract out multiple planes Single click multiple clip planes through domain toillustrate development
Integrated Quantitative Analysis Dynamically include quantitative analysis into the 3D scene.
Multiple variable investigation Investigate multiple variables at the same time.Viewports are linked allowing synchronizedpan/zoom/rotate.
Texture map for GIS Information Apply any image file as the “color” for the part(s) in thedomain Use aerial photo, topographic, or “generic” image from thegoogle. Use our plane tool to prescribe the size and direction ofimage projection for the part(s).

FLOW-3D Data Reduction Got large data files? Want to share results easily withcolleagues, partners, customers? Use EnSight’s Scenario file to create feature extractsfrom the model results and save this “viewer” file. Can save off multiple variables, created parts, as muchtemporal resolution as you choose.Demonstration :Original flsgrf file = 2.4 GbScenario file = 50 Mb50x reduction in filesize.Example
FLOW-3D Data Reduction Run conversion of flsgrf file to Scenario file in batch Control of Temporal, Spatial, Part, Variable exported toviewer file. Scenario file allows: Play through time and space. Pan/Zoom/Rotate Change variable displayed Change range of variable displayed. Share with customers/colleagues Still save off animations, images Viewer is free, no need for even software install when usingEmbedded Version Only saves off what you have created or are visualizing.(Cannot create anything within the Viewer).
Conclusion A wide variety of the tools available within EnSight toanalyze and visualize your results was illustrated. Combining interactive tools, dynamic displays whichremain interactive even in transient results, allows theuser to fully immerse themselves into understanding thesolution results. Wide variety of calculator tools allows further analysis orderived variable display, and data reduction. The extraction and communication of the “knowledge”gained from the simulation is the key to theunderstanding…. that’s the key to EnSight.
