EnSight post processing of rotor simulation. The image shown is combining the force distribution on the blades, along with the vorticity generated from the tip vortex of the blade. The lower surface is an elevated surface of mach. EnSight's unique co-processing capability was used to generate this animation. In this mode, EnSight runs along with the solver to generate the post processing after each time step of the solver is completed. This greatly reduces the time to post process the results, as well as being able to remove the previous datasets, reducing disk space requirements from Tb to Mb. Solver used was OverFlow.
