Tecplot 360* is a Numerical Simulation & CFD Visualization Software that combines vital engineering plotting with advanced data visualization into one tool. It allows you to quickly plot and animate all your data exactly the way you want, as well as analyze complex data, arrange multiple layouts, and communicate your results with professional images and animations. Tecplot 360 also helps save time and effort by automating routine tasks. Tecplot 360* loads unsteady data and displays only the first time step. Style changes applied to a given time step are propagated to the entire solution. Coupled with load on demand, time to first image is much faster. Tecplot 360* 2008 includes several advanced transient analysis options. A user can now synchronize transient animations among multiple frames – effectively showing multiple views of your data through time.
Smarter loading of data results in faster time to first image. Load on demand loads just the data you are actively using. For example, a Temperature contour plot only loads X, Y, Z and Temperature. When you switch to a new variable to contour (i.e., Pressure), Tecplot 360 loads Pressure and unloads Temperature (assuming it is not being used for anything else). Dual processor Linux and Windows boxes are becoming a standard for desktop engineering workstations. With Tecplot 360, intensive computing operations are spread across up to 64 CPUs or Cores, leading to faster streamtraces, slices, and iso-surfaces.
Python is a powerful open-source, object-oriented extensible programming language. Python scripting was added to Tecplot 360 specifically for engineers who require additional analysis (FFTs, splines, statistical functions, etc.) or more scripting flexibility than macro writing/recording. Additionally, you can run your Python scripts on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. Python offers strong support for integration with other languages and tools and comes with extensive standard libraries. The SciPy and NumPy scientific computing libraries are included with Tecplot 360, along with the Tk library for simple GUI development.

One of the most important new features of this product is the ability to write scripts in Python. This possibility has been created specifically for engineers who require additional analysis (FFTs, splines, statistical functions, etc.), as well as the flexibility that allows scripting, compared with writing macros. Python - is open-source (freely distributed and free of charge), object-oriented programming language that offers strong support and tools for integration with other programming languages, and comes with extensive standard libraries. Tecplot Focus 2008 users can now use a vast array of available open-source libraries.
Other new features and improvements:
"Updated user interface
"New animation options
"A variety of color maps, more contour groups
"Support for additional platforms (64-bitLinux, 64-bitWindows, IntelMac.)
"Unique, mnogokarkasnye layouts.
"Macros and automation.
• XY, 2D, and 3D building (vector, contour, polar, etc.).
"High quality vector and raster projects.
