Flow modeling made easy Welcome to Flow Science, a leading provider of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solutions. Flow Science’s flagship software, FLOW-3D, provides a powerful tool for complex fluid modeling problems. FLOW-3D enables highly accurate simulations of free-surface flows using TruVOF, the original and true form of the Volume-of-Fluid technique.
Aerospace engineers designing spacecraft for on-orbit operations face many unique design challenges. Fuel acquisition is among the many challenges due to the complexity of the maneuvers and the interaction of fuel dynamics with the spacecraft dynamics. FLOW-3D is well suited to model such operations. Any maneuver can be simulated using its non-inertial reference frames and coupled rigid-body dynamics. The motion and position of fuel in a microgravity environment is accurately simulated with powerful surface tension and wall adhesion model.

The use of FLOW-3D in your casting design process translates directly to savings that improve your company’s bottom line.
FLOW-3D provides?engineers and designers with powerful tools to enhance their experience and expertise. The savings come from cost reductions and cost avoidance. Now, quality and productivity issues can be solved in less time and with lower costs by evaluating alternative concepts with simulation before die steel is cut or molds are modified. And, the effectiveness of new tool development can be improved?by solving the problems?before production begins.

Optimizing coating processes can be difficult due to the small scale of fluid motion and the influence of effects such as wall adhesion and surface tension. FLOW-3D provides a convenient way to analyze these processes without having to resort to costly laboratory experiments.

Despite the continuing move towards a ?paperless? world, the market still hungers for simple, low-cost inkjet printers with more and more demand for high quality. The rapid proliferation in the use of digital cameras means more consumers also require high-quality color photo printing capability in their homes. This drives printer manufacturers to design better ways to satisfy the consumer demand through exotic design alternatives.
Optimizing design of hulls, onboard fuel tanks and cargo holds, assessing wave generation and wave impact on marine structures, investigating ventilation dynamics…all of these are important to the marine engineer. Computer simulation provides a convenient way to analyze these processes without having to resort to costly experiments.

MEMS (Micro-Electro Mechanical Systems), is a rapidly growing technology for the fabrication of miniature devices using processes similar to those used in the integrated circuit industry.
MEMS technology provides a way to integrate mechanical, fluidic, optical, and electronic functionality on very small devices, ranging from 0.1 microns to one millimeter. MEMS devices have two important advantages over conventional counterparts. First, they can be fabricated in large numbers, so that cost of production can be reduced substantially. Second, they can be directly incorporated into integrated circuits, so that far more complicated systems can be made than with other technologies.
