The call for abstracts for the 15th FLOW-3D European Users Conference is now open. Share your experiences, present your success stories and obtain valuable feedback from your fellow FLOW-3D users and Flow Science staff. The conference will be held June 2-3, 2015 at the Hotel Westminster in Nice, France. A half-day of FlowSight™ training will be offered the afternoon of June 1. We invite all users and those interested in learning more about our software products to join us for a stimulating CFD conference in the heart of the French Riviera.

Increasing Productivity by Reducing Ejection Times

In high pressure die casting, simulation software is used to help design better gating systems to feed the metal into the casting, improve the timing of the shot sleeve tip to prevent air entrainment due to turbulence, and identify the most effective locations for overflows, among other things. This article from Hellebusch Tool & Die explains how to reduce the time before a part can be ejected from the die in order to reduce the process time. Read the full case study >

Mooring Lines Model

FLOW-3D's mooring line model has many engineering applications. One of the most important applications is the mooring systems for Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessels in the offshore oil and gas industry. It can also be used to simulate mooring lines for floating Wave Energy Converters, floating wave breakers, anchored ships and many other moored structures, equipment and devices.

How to Bin Particles

Particles can be used to define a variety of different processes and objects. They can be used to represent inoculants in castings, show the settling of suspended solids in clarifiers, represent fish in rivers, etc. One way to count particles is to use a baffle flux plane or volume sampling box.

Flow Science Employee News

In December we bid farewell to Markus Grünzner, who had been working in Flow Science’s solver development team for 18 months under the US’s J-1 visa program. Markus’ work focused on modeling solutions for the water and environmental industries, and he certainly adhered to the cultural exchange purpose of the visa program through extensive travels throughout the Southwest and participation in local events in Santa Fe. He will soon join Flow Science Deutschland in Rottenburg, Germany, to continue his work with FLOW-3D.
