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.
