FLOW-3D is a highly-accurate CFD software

FLOW-3D Overview

FLOW-3D is a powerful and highly-accurate CFD software that gives engineers valuable insight into many physical flow processes. With special capabilities for accurately predicting free-surface flows, FLOW-3D is the ideal CFD software to use in your design phase as well as in improving production processes.

FLOW-3D is an all-inclusive package. No special additional modules for meshing or post-processing are needed. An integrated graphical user interface ties everything together, from problem setup to post-processing. For a description of key features in our latest FLOW-3D release, go to the What's New in Version 10.1 — Solver and the What's New in Version 10.1 — GUI pages.

Hardware Requirements

The hardware requirements to run FLOW-3D depend on the size of the computational grid and number of active physical models. An iso-thermal, inviscid simulation requires roughly 1GB of memory for 2.5 million computational cells in double precision. Activating turbulence & heat transfer increases the memory requirements by about 30%. A single precision solver reduces the memory requirements by roughly 40%.
