The big 3D color plots with iso-surfaces and slices provide useful qualitative information. They add to our understanding about a point in time, and they’re great as a tool for helping engineers visualize data for clients and peers. But engineers demand more than that. In the end you need quantitative information so you can do analysis and determine the details of how your engineering design is working.
Ultimately, it all comes down to how you’ll view the data you need to better understand your engineering problem. Most engineers aren’t aware just how much more information they could get if they could have a unified view as they analyze flow field and metadata.
Tecplot, Inc. Post-Processing Software Does More
At Tecplot, Inc., we think it’s not enough to focus on doing the qualitative 3D plots; we drill down through the 2D plots to the XY plots—the engineering plots—where quantitative analysis begins.
Tecplot Chorus carries that idea even further. We’ve incorporated the ability for the metadata in parametric space to use surrogate models to do these line plots so that you can actually look at an array of line plots for a whole range of cases.
Tecplot Chorus is designed to help you better manage, analyze, and visualize large amounts of metadata, identify trends and anomalies, and instantly go into the underlying physics.
With Tecplot Chorus, you can select multiple runs, then instantly look at the corresponding simulations, gaining insights into the differences between them. Then, as you’re looking through the associated quantitative data, you can select one solution or multiple, then jump back out to the accompanying simulations.
Those engineers trying to wrangle large amounts of simulation data will love how Tecplot Chorus helps them understand complexities and discover trends—all with instant access to the underlying physics.
Tecplot Chorus is the First Unified Environment for Enhanced Metadata and Flow Field Analysis.
Now you will be able to:
- Manage multiple projects.
- Wrangle large amounts of simulation data.
- Filter, explore, compare, and display differences between plot images to help discover and understand the physics.
- Detect problems from one easy-to-use interface.
- Rapidly visualize and explore surface data.
- View 3D surfaces within a flow field with a single mouse click, including grid-works of actual computational data points on body surfaces, slices through a flow field, boundary surfaces, iso-surfaces, and streamlines.
- Filter and compare cases, and calculate differences between solutions or sets of solutions.
- Perform automated plot and data extraction, quickly extracting metadata from complex file and directory structures for fast and easy integration with documentation.
The result will be more rapid prototyping of design concepts for faster time to market.
