Full text not available from this repository.


An interactive, hierarchical and comparative approach to analysing large ensembles of simulation or experimental data is presented. A database of processed output is stored on a remote server and visualised locally using a web-based client. The structure of the database mirrors the typical questions an engineer might raise when interrogating data, from configuration (geometry, solver, operating condition), to overall performance (lift, drag, efficiency), to detailed performance (lift distributions) and, finally, the flow field (cuts of flow properties). The user is able to view the whole database at a high level and then filter out only the simulations and experimental tests of current interest. Once these “Tasks” are identified, it is then possible to retrieve detailed data and generate One-, Two- and Three-Dimensional plots. These charts can be created, refreshed and removed from the web browser display on demand. The flexibility and utility of the approach is demonstrated using two case studies: the Onera M6 wing and a 3 stage compressor.
