Software helps engineers and scientists analyze design-space simulation data, better understand the underlying physics, and gain more confidence in their decisions

Tecplot, Inc., developer of the leading CFD visualization and analysis software for engineers and scientists, today announced the general availability of Tecplot Chorus 2015 Release 2.

The most notable functionality enhancements in the new release include constraint visualization, selected-cases view, and license roaming.

Constraint visualization has been added to 2D scatter plots to aid in trade studies. It allows engineers to quickly see which points in their design space are close to the constraint boundaries. With this information engineers may be willing to relax a constraint to achieve a lighter, stronger, or more efficient design.

The selected-cases view lets engineers quickly see which cases are selected in each view so they can make quick comparisons of selected points. No longer will users have to scroll through hundreds or thousands of cases in the Table View to see the few cases of interest.

With the new license-roaming feature, users can now roam with a network license, allowing them to use Tecplot Chorus for a period of time while traveling or working from home, even without access to the license server.

“As with all of our product releases, the new features contained in Tecplot Chorus 2015 Release 2 are the direct result of customer feedback,” Tecplot Product Manager Scott Fowler said. “Customers our are best R&D resource because they know, precisely, what they need to be more efficient and productive at work.”
