Flow Science, Inc. Announces Release Of Version 8

News Flow Science, Inc. announces the availability of a major new release of its FLOW-3DŽ computational fluid dynamics software. FLOW-3DŽ Version 8.0 features many new models, functionalities and improvements designed to increase user productivity and capabilities, and is perhaps the biggest leap forward for the well-respected software package in several years.

The most significant new feature is the introduction of the ability to create multiple grid blocks in the design of a simulation. Multi-block gridding in FLOW-3DŽ will enable users modeling complex flow phenomena to run their simulations faster yet, at the same time, more efficiently use computer resources. Each block will span a certain region of the whole flow domain and contain the standard structured rectangular mesh. Blocks will be able to be nested (one block contained entirely within another block) or linked (blocks are joined at their boundaries). Users will also be able to apply multiple mesh boundary conditions at the domain boundaries.

Using linked blocks, users can reduce problem size (reducing runtimes and saving storage and memory requirements) to create a pattern of flow that is limited to the actual flow domain. Likewise, where a particular area within the flow domain is of most interest to a user, one or more nested blocks of greater resolution can be placed inside a larger block with coarser resolution to allow a higher degree of accuracy of simulation in areas of interest (and again saving running time and storage and memory requirements).

Other major aspects of Version 8.0 are a New STL Viewer; a New General Bubble Model; a New Sediment Scour Model; and a New Dielectric Phenomena Model.
