Solving the World’s Toughest CFD Problems

We are very pleased to announce the speakers for the FLOW-3D World Users Conference 2023! Applying CFD to amusement park rides, sand dunes and sinking bubbles are just a few of the unique and exciting topics at this year’s users conference. Featuring the latest software developments and industry-specific tracks, FLOW-3D users in industry and academia will present their work in metal casting, additive manufacturing, civil, environmental, coastal, and maritime engineering. Flow Science’s senior technical staff will present the latest features, upcoming developments, and future plans for FLOW-3D.
