FLOW-3D Newsletter
2015 FLOW-3D Americas Users Conference
Flow Science is offering two locations for its 2015 FLOW-3D Americas Users Conferences, one in Denver on September 22 and one in Montreal on September 25. Free FlowSight training will be offered the day before both conferences. The deadline for abstracts is August 7. Register by August 14 to receive the early-bird registration rate >

Investigation of Mould Leakages in a Gravity Casting

CM Taricco, a mould maker company based in Italy, recently encountered a problem of metal leakages at the bottom of one of their new moulds. The cause of the mould leakages was initially obscure and only appeared after a few process cycles. It was evident that the problem was critical, since it would compromise the production timeline and dramatically increase the costs to cast the part. Read the case study from CM Taricco >

Active Simulation Control

A new feature in FLOW-3D v11.1 and FLOW-3D Cast v4.1 called Active Simulation Control provides users with an impressive level of “what if – then do this” control over their simulations. Learn how to take your simulations to the next level>

Flow Science's 35th Anniversary Simulation Contest

In honor of Flow Science’s 35th anniversary this year, we are holding a simulation contest that is open to all our customers, world-wide. Winners will be selected from each of  two categories: Commercial Users and Academic Users. First place winners will receive an Apple iPad Air 2 64 GB. One runner-up in each category will be awarded an Apple iPod Touch 16 GB. Winners and runners-up will be recognized in our fall 2015 newsletter. Learn how to enter >

Understanding Sources of Error

A lot of people associate the word "error" with "mistake." While it's true many errors are due to mistakes, there can be more subtle sources of error, especially in CFD. A small selection of the user-controllable sources of error and some examples of their impact on a simulation setup are discussed in this article.
