By combining the largest set of features of any visualization tool for CFD solvers on the market with exceptional performance on any sized model, FlowSight™ helps modelers make better decisions with simulation results. FlowSight is an advanced visualization tool available in all of our products: FLOW-3D, FLOW-3D Cast, and FLOW-3D/MP.
FlowSight is fully equipped with particle visualization capabilities. Particles can be colored by particle diameter, particle density, particle lifetime, velocity and other variables of a relevance. In this case, particles are colored by their respective diameters.
FlowSight’s streamline feature is an incisive way to visualize complex dynamics patterns with full fidelity, providing a realtime snapshot of flow field velocity direction. While pathlines simulate the trajectory of a fluid particle through time, history lines animate fluid particles in the flow field.
Velocity Vector Fields
FlowSight provides users the option of visualizing the velocity vector field both on a plane or the entire volume speed and direction analyses throughout the domain. The customizable vector fields allow for variable colorization and density/scale adjustments to increase clarity.
Iso-Surfaces are a powerful, quick method for visualizing fluid and solid surfaces, well-suited to displaying constant turbulent energy regions.
2D Clips are used to visualize a fluid parameter across any cross-section plane.
The 3D clipping tool lets users slice the iso-surface in all six directions simultaneously, useful for detecting high defect areas, visualizing temperature, pressure, velocity profiles inside both fluid and solid regions.
- Provide animation between the extents of a particular direction
- Swap in a single direction at a time
- Animate in both directions: forward and backward
Analyze surface views with expansive flexibility—including visualization over planar, cylindrical, box, conical, spherical, and streamline surfaces, helpful when fluid flow requires visualization on non-planar surfaces. Arbitrary clips also enable creation of multiple clips in time succession.
Using a customizable volume map to illustrate a variable throughout the volume, instead of only on the iso-surface. Shown left, the strain rate magnitude of each bubble and the surrounding liquid is shown with volume rendering.
Point probes illustrate the evolution of a variable over time, a line probe returns the variation of a variable’s values over distance. Right, a probe illustrates the solidification fraction of fluid.
Graphing tools brings a robust level of analytics to general history, diagnostics, and mesh dependent data, showing different simulation data comparatively.
Two different options are available for vortex core identification — Vorticity and Eigen analysis, allowing filterable result generation based on core strength.

Visualizing Non-inertial Reference Frame Motion
Non-inertial reference frame visualization provides a convenient simulation setup, drives down computational times and lets users visualize their models in a realistic manner.
