2014 FLOW-3D Americas Users Conference
The 2014 FLOW-3D Americas Users Conference will be held September 9-10, 2014 in Toronto, ON at the Courtyard Marriott Downtown Toronto. Advanced training for the water & environmental industry will be held Monday, September 8. All FLOW-3D, FLOW-3D/MP, and FLOW-3D Cast users—and anyone interested in the FLOW-3D product suite—are invited to attend the conference. The call for presentations and posters is now open!
New CFD-101 Article
Many numerical approximations to partial differential equations are unusable because they produce unstable computational results. Computational stability issues have been discussed in two previous articles in the CFD-101 series: Computational Stability I: Introduction and Computational Stability II: Heuristic Analysis. In this article, a simple mechanical model is described that leads to an understanding of common numerical instabilities associated with approximations of the Navier-Stokes equations.

Flow Science Named Among Best Places to Work in New Mexico
Flow Science has been named one of the Best Places to Work in New Mexico, an award given out by Albuquerque Business First. Flow Science was one of ten companies that received this honor in the Medium Company category. The award was based on an anonymous employee survey, where Flow Science staff ranked a variety of workplace criteria, such as collaboration, integrity of leaders, benefits for employees and their families, open communication and challenging work.
Flow Science Academic Promotional Offers

FLOW-3D Newsletter: Winter 2014
Read the latest edition of the FLOW-3D Newsletter, which features a development focus about the new k-ω model in version 11, a hints & tips article about how to speed up metal casting simulations, and an application note from Shiloh Industries about how they integrate CFD analysis into their die-cast process design.
Watch an On-Demand Webinar: Simulating Aluminum HPDC using FLOW-3D Cast
In this webinar, Flow Science engineers discuss successful high pressure die casting projects using FLOW-3D Cast, a highly-accurate casting simulation software for filling, solidification, and stress analysis. The demonstration covers an ongoing analysis done by Flow Science and C & H Die Casting. FLOW-3D Cast was used to analyze the flow and shrinkage defects in a thin-ribbed cover made of aluminum 380 alloy cast within a stainless steel mold. This webinar presents the results from the two runner types and the benefits of modeling the shot sleeve in HPDC simulations. Register here to watch this webinar.
