SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, October 25, 2010. Flow Science, Inc. announces that a new release of the distributed-memory version of its FLOW-3D computational fluid dynamics software, FLOW-3D/MP, is now available.
FLOW-3D /MP Version 4.1 offers substantial performance improvements, up to 40x on 64 processor cores giving FLOW-3D/MP users the opportunity to run larger and faster simulations than ever before. Version 4.1 includes a variety of subroutines in FORTRAN source form that allow users to customize FLOW-3D/MP. Users can customize boundary conditions or add their own models to meet their unique CFD modeling requirements. The ability to post-process results from serial and parallel versions of FLOW-3D has been integrated into FLOW-3D/MP 4.1. The physical models and numerical methods of FLOW-3D/MP v4.1 are based on FLOW-3D v9.4.2. Read a complete list of FLOW-3D v9.4.2 features at: http://www.flow3d.com/flow3d/flow3d_new_94.html.
FLOW-3D /MP, first released in 2006, uses multi-block methodology to decompose the computational domain into blocks, which are then distributed among the nodes in a cluster. FLOW-3D/MP v4.1 has been tested extensively on both Windows Server 2008 and Linux systems (RHEL 4 & 5 and SUSE 10 &11).
Flow Science has commenced shipment of this new release to FLOW-3D /MP customers under maintenance contracts.
