APEX, N.C., April 28, 2009 -- Computational Engineering International (CEI) announces EnSight CFD, new software for analyzing, visualizing and communicating computational fluid dynamics (CFD) results for scientific and engineering problems.
EnSight CFD, www.ensightcfd.com, is designed to allow users to explore CFD data interactively with twice as many functions tied to the computer\'s mouse buttons, and right-click menus preloaded with context-sensitive options. These improvements allow users to post-process and visualize a model using only the mouse.
This new CFD visualization product has an interface specifically tailored to the needs of CFD engineers, featuring improved readers for the analysis packages CFD engineers use most, including FLUENT and CFX. These enhanced readers automatically add a series of derived variables based on explicit dataset files. Therefore, quantities like radial velocity, pressure gradient, mach number, etc. are automatically available to the user, instead of having to manually create these quantities.
EnSight CFD also contains an easy-to-use calculator function for quantitative analysis. This new calculator allows users to quickly calculate frequently used formulas like mass flow average, mass flow rates, min/max values, etc.
“EnSight CFD saves precious time and money by automating complex, time-consuming tasks involved in post-processing CFD results. This new tool allows users to interactively solve difficult engineering problems and extract the full analysis from the simulation,” says Kevin Colburn, sales manager at CEI.
