flow-3d-model-setup Free Water & Environmental FLOW-3D Workshops -

Two free hands-on workshops geared towards prospective users of FLOW-3D will be held in conjunction with the FLOW-3D Americas Users Conferences on September 21 in Denver, CO and September 24 in Montreal, QC. The workshops will focus on modeling water and environmental flows with FLOW-3D. There is no cost to participate in these free FLOW-3D workshops. Participants will be given a free 30-day license after the workshop.

flowsight-simulation-contest 35th Anniversary Simulation Contest -

In honor of Flow Science’s 35th anniversary this year, we are holding a simulation contest that is open to all our customers, world-wide. Winners will be selected from each of two categories: Commercial Users and Academic Users. First place winners will receive an Apple iPad Air 2 64 GB. One runner-up in each category will be awarded an Apple iPod Touch 16 GB. Winners and runners-up will be recognized in our fall 2015 newsletter.

Versevo-LPDC-Webinar Free Webinar: A Low Pressure Die Casting Validation at Versevo -

Please join us as we present how to effectively simulate filling and solidification of a part with low pressure die casting (LPDC) using FLOW-3D Cast. This validation will compare actual short shots of a large, 38lb, aluminum casting with simulation results. Many thanks to Versevo Inc. for providing the part and their facility to carry out the experimental portion of this study. We will also show how to reduce simulation runtimes and discuss what parameters are important to accurately model LPDC processes.
