January 20, 2012 - Flow Science has entered into a collaboration with Sigma Technology (Moscow, Russia), developer of the high-efficiency, multi-dimensional nonlinear optimization software known as IOSO. Sigma recently released IOSO 2.04, which has direct integration to FLOW-3D. Using IOSO in conjunction with FLOW-3D, engineers can improve the performance of complex large-scale systems and technological processes based on what-if scenarios for arriving at optimal parameters. Under the cooperation agreement, through Flow Science, Sigma will offer FLOW-3D customers in North America a free 90-day trial license for IOSO PM, which allows for parallel optimization on multiple nodes.
IOSO is intended to help engineers reduce the time and cost for solving complex practical tasks, by allowing them to find the most efficient technical solutions based on multiple goals or criteria assigned by the user (multi-objective formulation). It aims to help minimize the number of calculations or the amount of experimental work required, while still achieving optimal parameters for the real-life systems.
Interested customers should contact either Flow Science, at Email Contact, or Sigma’s North American representative, Concepts NREC (White River Junction, VT) at Email Contact. Training and support will be provided by Concepts NREC (Dr. Edward P. Childs, Ph.D., Associate Director of Support and Documentation, Email Contact) and Sigma.
Sigma was founded in 2001, and has been actively promoting and marketing IOSO throughout the world. Key customers include Gazprom, MAN, Pratt & Whitney, Sukhoi and many more. It can be found on the internet at: http://www.iosotech.com.
FLOW-3D customers in Europe can contact XC Engineering (Cantu, Italy, www.xceng.com).
