News Flow Science, Inc. announces the availability of a new release of FLOW-3D/MP, the distributed memory version of its flagship CFD software, FLOW-3D.

FLOW-3D/MP v5.0 enables engineers to take advantage of the scaling potential of the software on multi-core clusters.

FLOW-3D/MP v5.0 offers users substantial performance and scaling improvements compared to standard FLOW-3D v10.1 for workstations and to the prior release of FLOW-3D/MP, v4.2.

Highlights of FLOW-3D/MP v5.0:

The physical models in FLOW-3D/MP v5.0 are based on FLOW-3D v10.1, which was released in early 2013. Read a complete list of FLOW-3D/MP v5.0 features.

"Parallelization is the future of CFD. Users continue to simulate larger and more complex problems. By heavily investing in the development of our HPC infrastructure, we will allow our users to meet and even exceed their complex simulation needs," said Michael Barkhudarov, VP of R&D.

FLOW-3D/MP, first released by Flow Science in 2006, uses a multi-block domain decomposition technique to distribute the simulation onto compute nodes in a cluster. FLOW-3D/MP v5.0 has been tested extensively and is currently supported on Linux systems (RHEL 5 & 6 and SUSE 11).

Flow Science has commenced shipment of this new release to FLOW-3D/MP customers under maintenance contracts.
