FLOW-3D World Users Conference 2022

We invite our customers from around the world to join us at the FLOW-3D World Users Conference 2022.The conference will be held on May 16-18, 2022 at the Maritim Hotel in Munich, Germany. Join engineers, researchers and scientists from some of the world’s most renowned companies and institutions to hone your simulation skills, explore new modeling approaches and learn about the latest software developments. The conference will feature application-specific tracks, advanced training sessions, in-depth technical presentations by our customers, and the latest product developments presented by Flow Science’s senior technical staff. The conference will be co-hosted by Flow Science Deutschland

Speakers Announced!

We are very pleased to announce the speakers for the FLOW-3D World Users Conference 2022! Users in industry and academia will present their work in metal casting, additive manufacturing, civil and environmental engineering, coastal structures, and maritime engineering. FLOW-3D engineers and associates will present on the latest features, upcoming developments, and future plans of FLOW-3D, and our esteemed keynote speaker Hubert Lang will share the 15-year history of FLOW-3D at BMW.

We are extremely pleased to confirm that Hubert Lang of BMW will be the conference keynote speaker. Hubert studied Mechanical Engineering with a focus on automotive engineering at Landshut University of Applied Sciences. In 1998, he started in BMW’s Light Metal Foundry in Landshut, working in their tool design department, where he oversaw the development of casting tools for six-cylinder engines. In 2005, Hubert moved to the foundry’s simulation department, where he was introduced to FLOW-3D’s metal casting capabilities. Since then, he has led considerable expansion in the use of FLOW-3D, both in the volume of simulations as well as the number of application areas.

Today BMW uses FLOW-3D for sand casting, permanent mold gravity casting, low pressure die casting, high pressure die casting, and lost foam casting. FLOW-3D has also been applied to several special projects at BMW: supporting the development of an inorganic binder system for sand cores through the development of a core drying model, calculation of the heat input during coating of cylinder liners, the development of the casting geometry for the injector casting procedure, and the layout and dimensioning of cooling systems for casting tools.
