News Flow Science, Inc. announces the availability of a new release of its FLOW-3D computational fluid dynamics software. FLOW-3D version 10.0 is a major release that features fluid structure interaction and thermal stress evolution models that simulate and analyze the deformations of solid components and solidified fluid regions and resulting stresses in response to pressure forces and thermal gradients.

The models use a combination of conforming finite-element and structured finite-difference meshes and have broad applications across industries.

Current users will experience a boost in speed with the implementation of SMP parallelization across the board for almost all models in FLOW-3D v10.0.

“Version 10 is one of the most important releases in the history of FLOW-3D. The code has advanced tremendously with the addition of the fluid structure interaction and thermal stress models, both of which give our users even more sophisticated and fundamental numerical modeling capabilities,” said Michael Barkhudarov, Flow Science’s Vice President of Research and Development.

Key models and improvements include:

  • Fluid Structure Interaction Model
  • Thermal Stress Evolution Model
  • Iron Solidification Model
  • Granular Flow Model
  • Surface Wave Generator Additions
  • Moisture Drying Model
  • Solid Solute Dissolution Model
  • Extended SMP Parallelization
  • Optional Materials Properties Database
