Save the dates! We invite our customers from around the world to join us at the FLOW-3D World Users Conference 2024. The conference will be held at the Steigenberger Hotel on June 10-12, 2024 in Hamburg, Germany.
A great deal of work remains before the Mactaquac Generating Station is restored. FLOW-3D HYDRO has allowed Hatch to identify the best approach moving forward, giving them a solid footing to plan and design future improvements and refurbishment. It allowed them to pinpoint the most effective way to improve hydraulic performance and reduce the risk of future erosion in the most efficient and cost-effective possible way.
FLOW-3D (x) 2023R1 further streamlines the workflow in our integration, automation, and optimization software, making it easier to perform analyses than ever before.
Flow Science, Inc. founder Dr. C.W. “Tony” Hirt was awarded the prestigious John Campbell Medal from the Institute of Cast Metals Engineers. Dr. Hirt received the award for his unique, long-lasting contributions to the science and practice of metal casting through his development of the FLOW-3D and its casting-specific version, FLOW-3D CAST.
The goal of a casting simulation is to predict casting defects and find the corrective measures to avoid such defects. To achieve this, the casting simulation must accurately predict the physical results. In this article, we illustrate a validation of FLOW-3D CAST by comparing simulation results with experimental findings. For this validation, we selected an aluminum casting with significant porosity defects. The extent of the porosities meant that the casting would not fulfill the functional specification and would be rejected.
In the world of CFD, we use FLOW-3D POST to learn about our processes, analyze, visualize, and communicate the results of our simulations. We can now use the ray tracing option to increase the quality of our images and videos.
Optimization of a vortex chamber with FLOW-3D (x) Predicting fluid behavior when comparing design alternatives for a hydraulic structure is always a difficult task. Small modifications to a design can drive the system to dramatically better or worse performance. This example of an optimized vortex chamber illustrates how FLOW-3D (x) can be applied to address […]
