Ladies and Gentlemen:

We are happy to announce that Team North American Eagle™ has partnered with Computational Engineering International, Inc (CEI) of Apex North Carolina. They will be providing product support and software solutions using their flagship product, EnSight Gold Visualization Software. EnSight Gold is a post-processing software used to interrogate and visualize CFD Solutions in both graphic or animation form.

As CFD Solutions using Metacomp Technologies CFD ++ Flow Solver are created by our Team Aerodynamists Darren Grove, Ron Doll, Rex Walter and Mike Thoe, they will use EnSight Visualization Software for further analysis and image visualization. The images above and below were created by Darren to illustrate the Eagle at 500 mph, or Mach 0.67. You can click on the two graphics below for a larger version.

In addition, CEI engineers will be working independently of our team to create graphic animations and 3D models to help in our marketing efforts. Click on this link to see a marine and shipping visualization animation.

EnSight Gold's distributed architecture handles scientific and engineering analysis models containing up to billions of nodes while optimizing memory use. It builds the full functionality of EnSight. Features unique to EnSight Gold include:

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is the analysis of fluid flow around or inside an object. It can be the flow around a car, boat, submarine; even the flow of blood through our veins. In our case, we will be analyzing the flow of air around the North American Eagle™ The results of that analysis will be CFD solutions to mitigate the transonic shock waves that develop as we transition from subsonic to supersonic speeds while maintaining stability and control of the car. As a scriptable language, EnSight Visualization Software will be used to display and animate the flow field differences between multiple designs, leading to optimal aerodynamic loads.

CEI flagship product EnSight Visualization Software rounds up our total engineering efforts. Beginning with FARO Technologies laser tracker and FaroArm captures to the use of photogrammetry and the ATOS White Light scans by Capture 3D we then have a point cloud that can be converted to surfaces using Geomagic Studio V12 Software. This model can then be used to perform analysis work like CFD and FEA, or created details and assemblies using Dassault Systèmes CATIA V5 and V6.

For CFD the team uses pre-processing PointWise CFD Meshing Software to create the CFD Mesh that can be exported to the CFD Flow Solver. Metacomp's CFD++ is the flow solver we use to create the CFD Solutions. These are then brought into EnSight Visualization Software for the graphics (and videos) you see at the top of the page.

When combined with other North American Eagle™ engineering partners like Lenovo Professional Grade / C20 and D20 ThinkStations and a 3Dconnexion 3D mouse, Team NAE engineers and aerodynamists have a very powerful engineering workstation. EnSight Visualization Software is an integral part of our CFD analysis.
