Modeling Capabilities

As a general-purpose CFD package, FLOW-3D has an extensive array of physical and numerical capabilities that have been developed over its 37-year history, such as incompressible free-surface internal and hypersonic external flow, heat transfer, turbulence, moving and deforming solids, surface tension and phase change. These models allow our users to successfully apply FLOW-3D to solve a wide range of engineering and scientific problems, optimize designs and gain insight into complex processes.

A one-fluid VOF approach, combined with FLOW-3D‘s adiabatic bubble and surface tension models, allows for effective modeling of void regions with a fluid. The solution is fast, robust and accurate and bypasses the need for more cumbersome 2-fluid VOF approaches.
