Powerful post-processing and scientific visualization system offering a large range of qualitative and quantitative efficient tools

for flow visualization and analysis around any 2D/3D complex geometry.



CFView™  is a polyvalent parallelized scientific visualization software system. It offers a large range of qualitative and quantitative outputs for 2D/3D scalar and vector fields. Steady/unsteady results on structured and/or unstructured grids can be handled easily with CFView™ allowing a straightforward analysis of complex physical systems. 

Simulation-based design decision process is even accelerated by CFView™ scripting capability using Python language. Recorded templates can be used for automatic replay of saved screenshots on new simulations sets. CFView™ embeds moreover specific features for turbomachinery configurations, such as meridional, blade-to-blade, pitch-averaged, spectral and temportal Nonlinear Harmonics specific views and cylindrical views but also for aero- and vibro-acoustics and marine configurations such as wake flow analysis, streamlines exports and free surface visualization. 

CFView™ provides a fully automatic procedure for the setup and the execution of the noise radiation analysis based on a NLH solution. This capability is available for aero-engine nacelles, CRORs and turbomachinery applications. Steps like the generation of the acoustic mesh, the interpolation of the harmonics, the definition of the microphones location and the execution of the FW-H or BEM acoustic analysis are fully automated. With one mouse-click the user switches from the NLH solution obtained in the Near-Field to the noise mapping in the Far-Field. 


CFView™ advanced features enable to get an insight into all multi-physics applications involving fluid flows including aerospace, turbomachinery, marine, automotive and oil & gas.
