FLOW-3D is an accurate, fast, proven CFD software that solves the toughest free-surface flow problems. A pioneer in the CFD industry, and a trusted leader, FLOW-3D is a highly-efficient, comprehensive solution for free-surface flow problems with human-centric support.
FLOW-3D is one of the most powerful tools available to analyze complex free surface and confined flow problems out there today. It provides an easy-to-use modeling interface and has been an integral tool in the design of hydroelectric, environmental, water resource and treatment related projects I’ve worked on over the last 15+ years. Flow Science’s technical support team and developers are easy to work with and are eager to provide advice, hear input from its users on potential enhancements to the code as well as quickly resolving issues that arise. The entire team at Flow Science have been great to work with and are a great resource to all engineers.
FLOW-3D CAST has been a tremendous asset to our quality program. After having evaluated six different casting simulation software Howell Foundry made the decision to purchase FLOW-3D CAST. Some of the factors in this decision include its setup versatility, cost, and most importantly its accuracy of the simulation to reality. FLOW-3D CAST’s powerful simulation ability coupled with its updated results viewer has been especially helpful on our most complex jobs to make sure we have a quality casting on the first pour.
We have used FLOW-3D to develop propellant slosh and pull-through simulations for a number of expendable launch vehicle systems over the last 20 years. More recently, the Flow Science support staff has been instrumental in helping us add heat transfer to cryogenic propellant tank simulations in order to capture ullage collapse effects due to vehicle maneuvers.
I have used FLOW-3D for over 15 years solving fluid flow problems in research and industrial applications. We use the software extensively in the design of river and coastal structures, water treatment units, dams, spillways, deep tunnels, and CSO diversion structures. FLOW-3D integrates state of the art in numerical solver techniques, cloud computing, pre- and post-processing tools resulting in substantial time and cost savings to our clients. FLOW-3D sales and technical support teams are excellent!
FLOW-3D is a sophisticated tool that provides insight into complex hydraulic problems that would be difficult to visualize or quantify with other software. Despite the sophistication, the software is very user friendly, and Flow Science provide great documentation and technical support. The results we have obtained from our FLOW-3D models have impressed both our clients and non-modelers in-house.
At 4C-Technologies we have been pioneers in using various software flow simulation solutions for nearly 35 years. We optimize part designs and tool/runner designs on casted HPDC parts in various metal alloys. Since 2008 we have solely been using FLOW-3D as it turned out to give by far the best accuracy. Furthermore, the support from the FLOW-3D team is outstanding.
From using CFD analysis with FLOW-3D for over twenty years, our level of trust has increased to the point that we are now confident in using CFD modeling for general study purposes and final design applications. The software gives us flexibility to quickly change conceptual details and configurations allowing the design to advance in stages.
We have been using FLOW-3D AM to advance the boundaries of fundamental science. FLOW-3D AM has been a great tool to test our hypotheses about the physics governing complex phenomena during multi-alloy 3D printing. FLOW-3D AM has helped us understand the evolution of thermal profiles and the associated mass transport and development of thermal stresses in complicated additively-built structures.
FLOW-3D is a powerful tool with many applications. We used FLOW-3D to effectively resolve flow through and hydraulic forces on a water diversion structure. We also modeled water flow through a proposed fish passage. We have been impressed with the accuracy, computational speed, and especially the user friendly GUI. And, our clients have been impressed with the model output, as well as, animations created by the post-processer. We are also appreciative of the highly responsive support staff.
Over the years, FLOW-3D has helped us solve complex hydraulic problems that would have otherwise been very difficult to solve with conventional hydraulic modeling tools. We are very thankful to the team at FLOW-3D. They have constantly been making the software better over the years, and have been very responsive to our needs.
FLOW-3D is an essential tool in our space engineering research & development process. FLOW-3D helps us better understand processes in cryogenic fuel dynamics, leading to savings in mass and improved launcher performance.
