What’s New in FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1

FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1 Release
FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1 Release

What's New in FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1

FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1 marks a significant development upgrade to the workflow automation and design optimization capabilities of FLOW-3D (x). The development objectives for this release center around performance and improved user experience.

FLOW-3D (x) is a powerful, versatile, and intuitive connectivity and automation platform, which includes a native optimization engine specifically designed for CFD applications. Whether you want to automate running FLOW-3D models through a parameter sweep, extracting key data to create post-processing deliverables, or you want to run dedicated optimization projects, refining geometry from dynamically connect CAD models or by sweeping through flow conditions, FLOW-3D (x) has all the features needed to perform these tasks in a clear and efficient manner. Remote execution, running simulations in parallel, and fully integrated batch post-processing are some of the new features that make FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1 an integral tool for our FLOW-3D user community.

Release Webinar

For a detailed overview of the key developments, register for the FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1 Product Webinar on August 25 at 1:00pm ET.

Performance

Parallel execution of FLOW-3D simulations for automation and optimization tasks

With 2022R1, FLOW-3D (x) can now run multiple FLOW-3D simulations in parallel. By evolving from serial to parallel execution, users can now make the most of available computational resources, vastly accelerating the time to completion of automated parameter sweeps and gaining valuable insight sooner.

Parallel execution of simulations
Depending on available license resources, the number of concurrent executions to use in the automation or optimization project is easily set in the FLOW-3D (x) execution widget.

Execution of FLOW-3D simulations on remote nodes

Hand-in-hand with the ability to execute FLOW-3D nodes in parallel, we recognized the need to be able to make the most efficient use of computational resources that might be remote and distributed across multiple workstations on a network. With FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1, users can define execution nodes as remote nodes. Users can decide which nodes, local or remote, to run FLOW-3D executions in order to best make use of their computational resources.

Simulation on remote nodes
In addition to running FLOW-3D (x) and FLOW-3D executions on a local workstation, remote nodes are easily configured in order to take advantage of remote computing resources.

Full integration with FLOW-3D POST and Python automation

Automated post-processing using FLOW-3D POST state files is now fully integrated into the workflow automation supported by FLOW-3D (x). The latest release of FLOW-3D POST 2022R1 allows users to create macros, state files, and Python-driven advanced batch automation. These advanced post-processing features are integrated into the FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1 release under a dedicated post-processing node, as well as under dedicated Python script execution nodes.

Advanced post-processing
With the integration of FLOW-3D POST post-processing capabilities into FLOW-3D (x), users can now automate their entire optimization process, from geometry or CFD mode parameter sweep through post-processed graphical deliverables.

User experience

Streamlined definition of optimization targets

A simplified definition of optimization targets has been added, allowing users to directly define targets rather than having to define a minimization goal.

Simplified definition of optimization targets
The new “target” class of objectives is now available in FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1.

Streamlined layout of user interface

Based on user feedback from the original release of FLOW-3D (x), the user interface now delivers a clear, intuitive experience even for large, complex optimization projects. Superior clarity of node and workflow definitions, improved layout optimization tasks and population selection, and dedicated nodes for all FLOW-3D products are some of the improvements delivered in this release.

Streamlined layout of interface
A more compact, streamlined workflow graphical representation is just one of the many user interface improvements delivered in FLOW-3D (x) 2022R1.

Data analysis and plot formatting upgrades

In keeping with efforts to streamline FLOW-3D (x) model setup and execution for the user, the data analytics graphical representation widget allows for clear, simple access to the most important data from your project simulations. Plot definition has been simplified and plot formatting improved. A new type of chart allows filtered data to be exported as text and images at custom resolution.

Flow Science Receives the 2022 Flying 40

Flow Science is named one of the fastest growing technology companies in New Mexico for the seventh year running.

Santa Fe, NM, July 28, 2022 – Flow Science has been named one of New Mexico Technology’s Flying 40 recipients for the last seven consecutive years. The New Mexico Technology Flying 40 awards recognize the 40 fastest growing technology companies in New Mexico each year, highlighting the positive impact the tech sector has on growing and diversifying New Mexico’s economy.

Flow Science continues to deliver best-in-class CFD products and service to our customers at top engineering companies worldwide. The strength of our business model has allowed us to not simply weather the economic storm brought on by the pandemic and other world events, but to grow in both revenue and workforce. We’re very proud to be recognized by New Mexico Flying 40 yet again and look forward to continuing our success and contributing to New Mexico’s economic growth, said Dr. Amir Isfahani, President & CEO of Flow Science.

The Flying 40 awards are based on three revenue categories: the top revenue growth companies with revenues between $1 million and $10 million, the top revenue growth companies with revenues of more than $10 million, and the top revenue-producing technology companies irrespective of revenue growth. Growth is measured over five years, from 2017-2021.

“In the midst of the worst pandemic of the past century these employers not only stayed open and provided thousands of jobs, they were able to grow their employee base. All of New Mexico should join us in celebrating these accomplishments,” said Sherman McCorkle, President and CEO of the Sandia Science & Technology Park Development Corp. and host of this year’s event.

Dr. Tony Hirt, Founder of Flow Science, Inc. Receives the John Campbell Award

Santa Fe, NM, May 11, 2022 — Flow Science, Inc. founder Dr. C.W. “Tony” Hirt was awarded the prestigious John Campbell Medal at the Institute of Cast Metals Engineers award ceremony on March 25, 2022, in London. Dr. Hirt received the award for his unique, long-lasting contributions to the science and practice of metal casting through his development of the CFD software FLOW-3D and its casting-specific version, FLOW-3D CAST.

Dr. John Campbell presented the award to Dr. Hirt, “In gratitude for making significant, really significant benefit to the foundry industry which we continue to enjoy to this day.” The award was accepted on behalf of Dr. Hirt by Flow Science’s Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Michael Barkhudarov.

The John Campbell Medal is awarded to an individual who has made a sustained contribution to the science and understanding of metal casting through research and development. Each year, the Institute writes to leading international castings research organizations and individuals, including Dr. John Campbell, the relevant Department Heads of the University of Birmingham and Mississippi State University, CAST-CSIRO, VDG and Cti, requesting nominations for an award shortlist.

Tony’s contribution to simulation is not only in developing useful modeling tools based on fundamental principles of physics but mentoring several generations of engineers that continue in his steps. The award is also welcome as a recognition that simulation tools have become an integral part of casting design and production as the industry matures and evolves, commented Dr. Michael Barkhudarov.

Dr. Hirt pioneered the Volume-of-Fluid (VOF) method while working at the Los Alamos National Lab. He went on to found Flow Science in 1980. FLOW-3D is a direct descendant of his development of the VOF method. This approach was expanded and perfected in FLOW-3D to the TruVOF technology, with cutting-edge and groundbreaking improvements in speed and accuracy in the simulation of flow with different liquid and gas interfaces. Today, Flow Science products offer complete multi-physic solutions with diverse modeling capabilities, including fluid-structure interaction, moving objects, and multiphase flows.
