Tecplot® 360™ 2012 Released

Tecplot, Inc. announced today the 2012 release of Tecplot 360®, the company’s flagship software for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) visualization and analysis. This latest version features a new ANSYS CFX data loader, a faster ANSYS Fluent loader, automated streamtrace seeding, and new cut plane tools.

"Every new release of Tecplot 360 focuses on helping our users get their work done more productively and with greater ease," said Rich Stillman, president. "This version provides important new capabilities to ANSYS users specifically, but it also delivers important improvements to streamtrace seeding and constrained slices in the cut plane tools.”

Tecplot 360 2012 offers performance improvements and enhancements, including:

  • Ansys CFX file loader: Load files generated by the CFX CFD code directly into Tecplot 360.
  • Faster loading of Fluent files: Automatically generates index files for each Fluent case and data file. The index file significantly speeds up the data loading process to rapidly provide the user with an initial plot.
  • Automated streamtrace seeding on surfaces: Select surfaces, such as bodies, slices, and iso-surfaces, and then automatically seed a specified number of streamtraces to start on that surface. This can be very helpful in identifying flow patterns on a body or in the 3D flow field.
  • Constrained slices: Constrain the extent of slices by restricting their range to a user defined box. This focuses the region under investigation and prevents surrounding details from being obscured. Multiple sets of slices can be specified with independently-positioned constraint boxes.
  • Performance improvements. Numerous operations have been optimized to run faster in this version.

Tecplot 360 2012 is available for 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows 7, Vista, and XP; 64-bit Mac and UNIX platforms and Linux platforms. Tecplot 360 users with current SMS agreements can upgrade to the latest version at no cost.

Founded in 1981 and based in Bellevue, Wash., Tecplot, Inc. empowers engineers and scientists to discover, analyze, and understand information in complex data, and to effectively communicate the results to others. The company launched Tecplot, its first software product for the scientific visualization market, in 1988. Since then, Tecplot has added Tecplot Chorus and Tecplot RS to its visualization and analysis products. With thousands of users worldwide, Tecplot, Inc. has become a trusted name in data visualization.
