FLOW-3D/MP for Windows

FLOW-3D/MP 3.0 is now available for Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 (x64). The Microsoft Message Passing Interface (MS-MPI) version of MPI library is used. Jobs are submitted via scripts using command-line job scheduler.

CFD Online Forum

On October 1, 2008, CFD-Online launched a new forum dedicated to using and learning about FLOW-3D. The forum has already drawn a lot of interest and is connecting FLOW-3D users from all around the world.

FLOW-3D Webinars for Casting and Hydraulics Applications

Improve Your Gating and Runner Design

Wednesday, November 5, 2008 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST

You're invited to attend a free CFD webinar where Flow Science will use FLOW-3D simulations to analyze a gating and runner design to extract parameters and flow patterns for an A356 can casting. Examples showing how simulation can help minimize scrap rate and improve quality will also be presented.

Highlights include:


Hydraulic spillway design methods using FLOW-3D

Wednesday, November 12, 2008 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST

We will validate FLOW-3D by comparing simulations with data obtained from physical models for two different Ogee spillways. We will compare two common methods (Lux and Tullis) for designing spillways.

Highlights include:

Water Engineering in the Ancient World
Archaeological and Climate Perspectives on Societies of Ancient South America, the Middle East, and South-East Asia by Charles R. Ortloff

Charles Ortloff, a long-time user of FLOW-3D, has recently written a book based in part on his work with FLOW-3D. The book, which is being published by Oxford University Press, is now available for pre-order on Amazon. Go here to see some of the archeological sites included in the book.
