Report: 2006 FLOW-3D World Users Conference
Flow Science held its 2006 FLOW-3D World Users Conference and Advanced Training in Denver, Colorado, September 20-22, 2006. FLOW-3D users presented a wide-variety of applications, from solving shrinkage porosity problems in high pressure die casting to validating flow measurements of an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler using FLOW-3D (see our Application Note in the Fall 2006 News edition for a full discussion of the U.S. Geological Survey's study). To request the conference proceedings, please contact Amanda Ruggles.
