Training Schedule

Monday, June 5, 2023
  • 13:30-15:00: FLOW-3D POST
  • 15:00-15:30: Coffee break with refreshments
  • 15:30-16:00: Rescale & Cloud Computing
  • 16:00-17:30: FLOW-3D (x) 

FLOW-3D POST: Beyond the basics, simulation troubleshooting and advanced scene rendering

FLOW-3D POST is a flexible, powerful post-processing tool which allows the user to easily change focus from cell-level point property investigations up to complete scene advanced rendering. In this training we will explore two common post-processing functions. We will first learn how to extract point value information for either troubleshooting or run-time improvement purposes. This part is deeply technical but offers the reward of providing insights into why a simulation may be running into numerical difficulties or inefficiencies. In the second part we learn how to create compelling images and animations by exploiting advanced rendering effects using vectors, ray tracing and moving camera effects.

Rescale: A new platform for FLOW-3D users to leverage cloud-based high performance computing (HPC) resources

Flow Science is offering a new cloud-based resource, Rescale, for customers to run FLOW-3D models on a wide selection of remote hardware. This training is structured around three topics: 

  1. Opening a Rescale account, running a model and post-processing data; 
  2. Running on Rescale in command line mode versus using Rescale in a user interface-based environment; and 
  3. Detailed benchmarking on many different types of hardware architectures available on Rescale, to clarify the cost-performance considerations tied to hardware choice and HPC deployment strategy. At the end of the training session, users will have a clear command of both the practicalities and the costs of running models on the Rescale platform.

FLOW-3D (x): Efficiency and improved simulation insights through automation

FLOW-3D (x) is a powerful addition to the FLOW-3D toolkit which allows users to easily connect, automate and optimize many simulation elements, from CAD parametric definitions through automated simulation and post-processing complete cycle workflows. In this training, users will learn how to use FLOW-3D (x) in conjunction with other software nodes in order to create robust simulation environments, thereby automating simulation and post-processing tasks to greatly improve workflow efficiency.

Attendees will receive a free 3-month license of FLOW-3D (x) after the conference.

Presenter Information

Each presenter will have a 30 minute speaking slot, including Q & A. All presentations will be distributed to the conference attendees and on our website after the conference. A full paper is not required for this conference. Please contact us if you have any questions about presenting at the conference. XC Engineering will sponsor the Best Presentation Award.
