Training & Consultation

Flow Science offers high-quality, hands-on training classes for FLOW-3D and FLOW-3D Cast in Santa Fe, NM. The focus of the classes range from industry-specific focus on metal casting or water & environmental simulations to our Introductory FLOW-3D training, where the coursework is designed to cover the wide range of physical modeling solutions FLOW-3D provides. All classes are aimed at giving the attendees a solid understanding of our software, as well as hands-on experience with problem solving in cases relevant to them. At the end of the training class, students will be able to set up and run simulations using either FLOW-3D or FLOW-3D Cast, as applicable. Existing and new users, as well as those interested in evaluating the software, are invited to attend. Class size is limited to eight students so that individual attention can be given to each trainee’s modeling interests. For more information about attending training, please contact us.

Introductory Training

The FLOW-3D Introductory Training Class is a 2 ½ day course that is designed to provide an understanding of FLOW-3D for a wide range of applications. At the end of the course a new user will be fully functional in FLOW-3D, being able to define, run, and analyze problems without external help. Download the introductory training schedule

FLOW-3D Cast Training

The FLOW-3D Cast Training Class is primarily a hands-on class. Attendees will be asked to send us a simple sample simulation along with all pertaining properties including material properties and process parameters. Download the metal casting training schedule

Water and Environmental Training

The Water and Environmental Training Class consists of two and a half days of application-specific lectures and hands-on work. The intent of this format is to reinforce the lectures with exercises that demonstrate the application of FLOW-3D to real-world simulations. Download the water and environmental training schedule
