The ANSYS ICEM CFD Visual3 post-processor is flexible, scriptable and customizable. It can post-process from a number of CFD and FEA results formats, and it supports structured, unstructured and hybrid grids. ICEM CFD Visual3 provides an in-depth view of data with visualization tools such as cutting planes, contouring, iso-surfaces, streamlines, line plots, data probes and animation. Features such as a CFD function calculator and an intuitive user interface make ANSYS ICEM CFD Visual3 a powerful interpretation tool of computed results. One-way fluid–structure interaction (FSI) can easily be set up between a variety of solvers. CFD results, such as pressure or temperature, can be interpolated onto an FEA mesh as loads and then exported to a range of FEA solvers.
While Visual3 may meet or exceed many needs, the focus is shifting to newer post-processing tools within the ANSYS Workbench environment, such as ANSYS CFD-Post — and consideration of these options is recommended.
