Versevo Inc. adds FLOW-3D Cast to its technology toolbox
Versevo Inc., a multi-disciplined designer and manufacturer of tooling and cast metal products, has signed a multi-year license agreement with Flow Science, Inc., to use FLOW-3D Cast software for simulating the flow, solidification, and thermal effects upon sand cast, permanent mold, high & low pressure die cast, and the lost foam casting processes.
Aluminum Casting Simulations
Closed-loop, automatic optimization makes fast work of enhancing FLOW-3D CFD analyses.
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.
Flow Science Academic Promotional Offers
For a limited time, Flow Science is offering two exciting new programs for academic institutions and students. For the 2013-14 academic year, these two programs will be made available to academic institutions in the US and Canada.
FLOW-3D/MP 5.0 Released!
Flow Science, Inc. announces the availability of a new release of FLOW-3D/MP, the distributed memory version of its flagship CFD software, FLOW-3D. FLOW-3D/MP v5.0 enables engineers to take advantage of the scaling potential of the software on multi-core clusters. FLOW-3D/MP v5.0 offers users substantial performance and scaling improvements compared to standard FLOW-3D v10.1 for workstations and to the prior release of FLOW-3D/MP, v4.2.
Anthony Lockwood, Senior Editor at Desktop Engineering writes about his pick of the week, FLOW-3D/MP v5.0.
Flow Science Sponsors STEM Event and Holds Workshop
Flow Science was a proud sponsor of the recent STEM event at the Santa Fe Community College in Santa Fe, NM. In addition to sponsoring the event, Flow Science employees, Anita Reynolds and Melissa Carter, ran a simulation workshop for 25 5th and 6th grade girls, "Designing Lotion Bottle Pumps." See photos of the event on the Flow Science Facebook page.
