News Flow Science, Inc. announces that a new release of the distributed-memory version of its computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, FLOW-3D/MP, is now available.

FLOW-3D/MP Version 4.0 offers substantial performance improvements, including significant decreases in problem setup and simulation times.

Crucial developments to the software have reduced the amount of data sent via MPI communication, cut down on the number of synchronization points and improved computational load balancing using the automatic domain decomposition tool (ADT).

ADT allows users to decompose the domain quickly and efficiently, instead of relying on a tedious and often inaccurate manual procedure. All of this makes it possible to extend scaling to up to 32 cores and achieve runtime improvements of as much as 16x.

The physical models and numerical methods of FLOW-3D/MP v4.0 are based on FLOW-3D v9.3.2. Read a complete list of these features.

“This new version will enable our user community to achieve highly-accurate and reliable answers in a half day or less which might have previously taken a week,” said David Souders, Flow Science’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

FLOW-3D/MP, first released in 2006, uses multi-block methodology to decompose the computational domain into blocks, which are then distributed among the nodes in a cluster. FLOW-3D/MP has been benchmarked and tested extensively on both Windows Compute Cluster and Linux workstations.

Flow Science has commenced shipment of this new release to customers under maintenance contracts.

Flow Science, Inc. is a privately-held software company specializing in transient, free-surface flow modeling software for industrial and scientific applications worldwide. Flow Science has distributors for FLOW-3D sales and support in nations throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. Flow Science’s headquarters is located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Flow Science can be found on the internet at FLOW-3D is a registered trademark of Flow Science, Inc, in the USA and other countries.
