Using the Loci-Chem Extract Utility to Create a Tecplot SZL File

By Tecplot’s Chief Technical Officer, Scott Imlay, PhD “In mathematics you don’t understand things. You just get used to them.” — Johann von Neumann I’ve written several blogs on Tecplot’s new SZL technology and how it speeds up the visualization of large CFD data sets by loading only those subzones (small chunks of data) that are needed for the desired visualization. We’ve demonstrated dramatic speed-ups for large data sets. For […]

Working with Unsteady Results

Today’s low-cost computational resources have fundamentally changed the way we approach modern technical challenges. In the world of CFD, one of the most dramatic changes has been the increasing use of unsteady (transient) simulations, which allows engineers and scientists to study moving machinery and turbulence flows more effectively. This article is designed to show you how to work more easily with unsteady results using the improved quantitative capabilities in the […]

We put the “I” back in TecIO

TecIO Read Capability A blog by Dr. Scott Imlay, Tecplot’s Chief Technical Officer “Good things come to those who wait!” – Guinness beer advertisement For many years, TecIO has been a library of utility functions that allow you to output Tecplot binary files directly from your application. There are two versions of TecIO, one for serial output, and one for MPI-based parallel output. The serial-output version can output either classic […]

Tecplot SZL File Output from FUN3D

FUN3D version 13, released in September 2016, supports writing binary files in the new SZL format. I’ve written in previous blogs about the benefits of SZL technology for visualization of large data files. With SZL technology, common visualization tasks are up to two orders of magnitude faster and data files are compressed by up to 50%. This change offers additional benefits to FUN3D/Tecplot users, especially for those running in parallel on […]
