Flow Science's 30th Anniversary
30 Years of Improving the World Through Accurate Flow Modeling
Flow Science is entering into its 30th year of offering solutions in computational fluid dynamics (or, as a flyer from an early seminar announced it "Numerical Fluid Dynamics"). In addition to its flagship software, FLOW-3D, Flow Science has expanded its product range to include FLOW-3D/MP, the distributed-memory version of FLOW-3D, and FLOW-3D Cast, a specialized version for casting users. Flow Science also provides consulting and development services. Founded in 1980 (read the original statement of purpose), by C.W. "Tony" Hirt as a spin-off from his work at Los Alamos National Labs, the company has grown substantially in size and reach. Flow Science has expanded into China, with its subsidiary Flow Science Software Trading Co., Ltd, and is represented in over 20 countries around the world.
