December 8, 2023
Flow Science debuts updates for the FLOW-3D 2023R2 product family, which features developments focused on optimized workflows and performance, including turbulence model improvements and a faster hydrostatic solver across all products. FLOW-3D POST 2023R2 introduces support for a new results file format that enables faster postprocessing and more streamlined workflows, the company reports.
This new file format reduces the time spent on postprocessing tasks for large, complex simulations while improving connectivity with other visualization tools and FEA codes, according to Flow Science. FLOW-3D POST users can now quickly visualize large, complex cases and extract auxiliary information using arbitrary slicing, volume renders and statistics.
Product-specific developments include a new Thermal Die Cycling model in FLOW-3D CAST for a simpler, more intuitive setup process that matches process sheets in high-pressure die casting and other permanent mold casting processes, expanded terrain representations in FLOW-3D HYDRO to improve ease of use when handling topography and bathymetry, and a faster compressible flow solver for FLOW-3D.
“With each release, our goal is to continually improve the FLOW-3D user experience, whether it’s through faster runtimes, better workflows or increased accuracy. These three factors—speed, workflow and accuracy—are at the heart of our customers’ success with our products. It delivers a huge speedup in the postprocessing experience that allows users to take full advantage of FLOW-3D POST’s top-notch visualization for much bigger and higher resolution and therefore, more accurate simulations,” says Amir Isfahani, president and CEO of Flow Science.
FLOW-3D products come with support, video tutorials and access to example simulations. Customers can also use Flow Science’s CFD Services to augment their product experience, including customized training courses, HPC resources and flexible cloud computing options.
