Plotly + PyFR: Real-Time Visualization for Extreme-Scale Aerodynamics

Efficient and accurate visualization technologies can bring greater insight to the field of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), with implications for the design of aircraft with lighter environmental impacts. This project will utilize the open-source PyFR solver co-developed at Concordia University, and the open-source Dash analytic application framework developed by Plotly. The academic partner and their research group will explore the utility of Dash as a tool for 2D and 3D real-time visualization of complex data produced by simulations run with PyFR. Quantifying Dash’s utility across three areas — real-time visualization capability, reduction in data storage and transfer requirements, and reduction in time-to-solution — as compared to existing approaches will provide important product development insight for the partner organization, Plotly.
