EnSight is a software program for visualizing, analyzing, and communicating data from computer simulations and/or experiments. Major markets for EnSight are automotive, aerospace, defense, combustion, energy production, high-tech manufacturing, and other markets which require very high precision in computer-based physics modeling. It is most often used for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Computational Structural Mechanics (CSM), and other CAE (computer aided engineering) processes.

APEX, N.C. (December 4, 2007) – Computational Engineering International Inc. (CEI) was recently awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program Phase I Award from the United States Army.
The purpose of the project is to research and determine the technical merit or feasibility of CFD Co-processing for Unsteady Visualization. Co-processing remains a seldom-used method to post-process simulations both because of gains in computing speed and storage capacity, and the lack of reliable, robust automated flow feature extraction methods. Due to the size of these large, complex, transient solutions, a shift towards co-processing technology is required. CEI will research adapting it’s high performance and flexible EnSight post processing system for the purpose of co-processing these large and complex simulations.
Under the SBIR, CEI will investigate the feasibility of periodically reviewing results as the solver computes them, which may require days or even weeks of processing time.
Mark Potsdam, Aerospace Engineer with the US Army, AFDD, and project manager of the SBIR Phase I award said, “The US Army Aeroflightdynamics Directorate is looking forward to working with CEI to significantly enhance our CFD post-processing capabilities. The co-processing capabilities that CEI will develop and demonstrate in this SBIR will drastically reduce the manpower and time required to visualize large-scale, time-dependent rotorcraft CFD datasets.”
“CEI is always looking for new challenges that we can apply our expertise and current technology towards solving. I am confident that we will find and propose a robust and high performance solution to the U.S. Army under the Phase I SBIR,” said Anders Grimsrud, president of CEI. Karbon to Present Virtual Automotive Design Techniques During Keynote at CEIViz 2008 Conference
APEX, N.C., August 7, 2008 –Kenneth Karbon, performance engineer at General Motors Vehicle Engineering, will be the keynote speaker at the second biennial CEIViz ‘08 conference. CEIViz ‘08 is the international conference for high-performance visualization. The conference will be held at the Radisson Lord Plaza Hotel in Baltimore, MD, September 23-25, 2008.
Karbon’s presentation will focus on simulation and visualization in automotive design. Automotive design and engineering has a rich history of hardware testing and development. Major automakers have an extensive network of styling studios, proving grounds, test labs, and prototype shops. These hands-on methods will always be necessary in some form for automotive designers to deliver a final product that meets the expectations of customers who are equally passionate about the vehicles they drive.
“Automotive engineering performance is governed by numbers like miles per gallon, drag coefficient, and stopping distance, says Karbon. However, to connect with our partners in styling and design, we need to bring those numbers to life with effective visual communication.”
Globalization of the auto market and compressed product cycles pushed the limits of physical testing capability and brought computer methods to the mainstream. Simulations are well established in the vehicle development process, supplementing experiments or eliminating them altogether in order to maximize engineering throughput. Karbon’s presentation will summarize General Motors’s use of virtual tools in styling, CAD, CAE, and collaboration, including visualization successes with EnSight. Mississippi State University Purchases New Academic License for CEI's EnSight
APEX, N.C. (May 8, 2007) – Computational Engineering International (CEI) announced today that Mississippi State University is the first institution to license the company’s EnSight visualization software through its new and flexible academic licensing options. The new pricing options provide qualified academic institutions with an EnSight license for either a specific course or for the entire campus. EnSight is an industry-leading extreme visualization tool for the scientific and engineering community, and is used by researchers worldwide in a wide variety of industries and research areas.
“Our new class and campus academic licenses offer universities EnSight’s industry-leading visualization capabilities through specially priced plans that respond to the needs of academia,” said Darin McKinnis, CEI’s vice president of marketing and sales. “And we’re particularly pleased to see our first academic license go to Mississippi State University, where EnSight will serve an impressive variety of fields and disciplines at three of the school’s computational research centers.”
Mississippi State University’s campus license will cover four of the research centers that are part of the University’s High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HPC2). The centers include the Computational Simulation and Design Center (SimCenter); the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems (CAVS); the GeoResources Institute (GRI); and the Center for Computational Sciences (CCS). As part of the HPC2, these centers are involved in research that advances the state of the art in computational science and engineering using high-performance computing for applications ranging from aerospace to geospatial technologies.
The decision to purchase a campus license was prompted in part by the need for a commercially supported post-processing tool that would serve as a standard throughout the research facilities. Formerly, the University relied on an open-source application. The new license includes EnSight, EnSight Gold, and EnSight DR.
“EnSight not only provides for the visualization needs of our computational research facilities, but it also responds to our specialized computing demands,” said Dr. Eric Blades, Assistant Research Professor Mississippi State’s SimCenter. “Our campus license makes it possible—and affordable—for us to work on desktops, to process large-scale computations in parallel, and to call on powerful distributed rendering capabilities for our immersive virtual environment.”
The new academic licenses offer extraordinary computing flexibility to academic facilities. EnSight’s flexible architecture supports the mixing of computer platforms within a single visualization session, within a workgroup, or even across a university’s entire network. In addition, all EnSight licenses are floating, meaning that EnSight can be installed and run on any computer within the local network. To run EnSight, users at a licensed academic institution can simply install the application and contact the network administrator to obtain the license key to use the software.
Both campus and class licenses are available either on an annual or perpetual basis. One year’s maintenance and support are included with both the annual and perpetual licenses.
