Innovation & Quality


CFView™ is a polyvalent parallelized Computational Flow Visualisation software system. It offers a large range of qualitative and quantitative outputs for 2D/3D scalar and vector fields. Steady/unsteady results on structured and/or unstructured grids can be handled easily, allowing for a straightforward analysis of complex physical systems. 

The simulation-based design decision process is further accelerated by CFView™ scripting capability, using Python language. Recorded templates can be used for automatic replay of saved screenshots on new simulations sets.

Moreover CFView™ embeds specific features for turbomachinery configurations, such as meridional, blade-to-blade, pitch-averaged, spectral and temporal Nonlinear Harmonics specific views and cylindrical views. Marine users also have access to many tools to automate the post processing such as a wake flow analysis or forces/momentum by sections.

CFView™ provides a fully automatic procedure for the setup and the execution of noise radiation analysis based on a NLH solution. This capability is available for aero-engine nacelles, CRORs and turbomachinery applications. Steps like the generation of the acoustic mesh, the interpolation of the harmonics, the definition of the microphones location and the execution of the FW-H or BEM acoustic analysis, are fully automated. With one mouse-click the user switches from the NLH solution obtained in the Near-Field, to noise mapping in the Far-Field.
