On September 20th and 21st, FLOW-3D users from around the world converged on the historic Adolphus Hotel in Dallas, Texas, to participate in the annual FLOW-3D Users Conference and attend an Advanced Hydraulics Workshop.

Armed with interesting applications in the fields of hydraulics, maritime, aerospace, casting and microfluidics, FLOW-3D users demonstrated the sophisticated and versatile capabilities of FLOW-3D. In addition to user presentations, Flow Science presented its plans for the next release of FLOW-3D. Tecplot, Intelligent Light and CEI were on hand both with tabletop exhibits and demonstrations of their visualization products. The conference closed with an open forum for attendees to pitch ideas and stake claims for future development for FLOW-3D.
