Hydro technology company Flow Science announces software upgrades

Flow Science, Incl. has released a new version of its computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling software that further enhances its value in hydroelectric project design, the company said.

The software, called “Flow-3D/MP v5.0”, will enable users to take advantage of the software’s scaling potential on multi-core clusters. The physical models in v5.0 are based on Flow-3D v10.1, which was released earlier this year.

“Parallelization is the future of CFD,” said Michael Barkhudarov, vice president of Flow Science research and development. “By heavily investing in the development of our high-power computing infrastructure, we will allow our users to meet and even exceed their complex simulation needs.”

Flow-3D/MP uses a multi-block domain decomposition technique to distribute the simulation onto compute nodes in a cluster, the company said, and is currently supported by Linux systems with RHEL 5 and 6, and SUSE 11.

A full list of Flow-3D/MP v5.0’s new features is available from the company here.

Flow Science will be exhibiting at Booth No. 339 at HydroVision International 2013 in July.
