Computational Engineering International’s EnSight 9.1 released

APEX, N.C - Computational Engineering International (CEI) announced today that EnSight 9.1, the latest version of the company’s extreme visualization software, is now available.

EnSight 9.1 includes several new improvements to the powerful visualization product including: practical volume rendering, faster and less memory required for models which include polyhedral cells, session files to save work and replay it on other datasets, more data readers of CAE data including from CFD and FEA datasets, and a welcome screen to guide new users and to rapidly access current projects. The key enhancement is volume rendering.

Volume rendering is an important visualization technique which has until now been unavailable to the average engineer and scientist. While volume rendering has been used in medical imaging and seismic oil field analysis, CEI’s EnSight brings this capability to the fields of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for uses in aerodynamics, astrophysics, enhancing sports performance, automobile occupant safety, high-speed medical imaging, combustion, alternative energy, and structural analysis.

“Practical volume rendering for CFD and FEA is only now possible because of the development of powerful graphics cards from ATI and nVidia, and integration with tools engineers and scientists in the field are accustomed to, namely EnSight. Customers tell me that their previous process of using volume rendering was to send their data to a volume rendering researcher and wait for some images or movies to come back.” says Dan Schikore, vice president of engineering.
