FieldView Powers the Energy Industry

Energy is a global concern, for both economic and environmental reasons. The pressures of supply and demand are putting an emphasis on efficient, reliable energy generation and spurring innovation in both traditional and renewable energy fields. Whether your challenge is reducing emissions in existing coal and gas-fired plants, increasing the reliability of wind or solar power, or creating specialized fuel cells, CFD simulation is essential to finding solutions.

In this demanding environment, physical testing is often impractical, if not impossible, and analyzing designs under a wide range of operating conditions exacerbates time and data constraints. Success depends on an efficient, productive CFD workflow that helps you quickly make sense of large volumes of data, compare results, and identify areas of interest for further exploration. Customers such as BMA, Norsk Hydro, Hydro Quebec, GE, Vestas, Siemens, and NASA rely on FieldView to tackle the complexities of energy engineering.

Fueling the Push for Improved Coal-Based Energy

The challenges in coal-based energy have never been greater. Global energy demands are increasing rapidly, but concern about coal’s environmental effects make engineering new or retrofitting existing facilities difficult. Innovative designs for steam turbines that generate energy efficiently while reducing pollutants are the new imperative. Highly transient and complex, these models aren’t easily prototyped; that limitation, along with short maintenance windows when problems arise, make CFD simulation essential.

  • Combustion – flow, flame contours, heat flux patterns, temperature regulation
  • Emission controls – pollutant formation, mitigation
  • Chemical reagent interactions, concentrations

You need a highly productive, agile, and robust CFD workflow that lets you easily visualize the flows within your design, interact with the data, compare results, and get to vital insights and accurate answers fast. FieldView puts you in control of the CFD workflow with the industry’s fastest post-processing and interpretation capabilities, no matter what CFD solver you use. Advanced visualization tools bring your designs to vivid life for in-depth interrogation and persuasive presentation to all stakeholder audiences.

Take advantage of FieldView’s powerfully productive data management techniques to create extract databases (XDBs) that significantly reduce analysis time and storage requirements. Use XDBs with FieldView sweep caching to interactively sweep through time-steps at extremely fast rates.

FieldView’s easy to use, flexible automation tools help you tackle repetitive tasks and shape the workflow to best suit your specific needs and engineering environment.

Leverage your HPC resources – scale up with parallel processing or scale out using concurrent batch processing to increase capacity and throughput and reduce turnaround time.


Precision Tools for the Nuclear Energy Industry

Whether applied in power generation plants or in ships and other vessels, nuclear energy is a serious science requiring precise, reliable simulation tools. Nuclear engineering problems create many cases and large, complex volumes of data for analysis, parametric study, and numerical comparison. You need a highly productive, agile, and robust CFD workflow that lets you easily visualize and interact with your data, compare results, and get to vital insights and accurate answers fast.

  • Thermal heat transfer in control rods
  • Reactor core flow
  • Fluid-structure interaction in pumps and piping
  • Multi-phase simulations
  • Accident scenarios
