This release also comes with increased meshing capabilities, including conformed and partially-overlapping meshes, and solution sub-domains that significantly decrease the memory requirements, simulation times, and size of results files without compromising accuracy.
One of the most widely-used and unique CFD models in the industry, FLOW-3D's sediment scour model has been rewritten to address the complex nature of sediment transport and scour. The model features improved accuracy, an extension to shallow water flows, and much more.
"The extensive work that we've done to customize EnSight, the leader in post-processing and visualization software, to display the complex flow regimes our customers use FLOW-3D to understand is only the beginning. From here on, FLOW-3D users will be able to take their analysis to another level," said Tom Jensen, President of Flow Science. "Coupled with further development of cutting-edge models in the FLOW-3D solver, version 11 is definitely a major step forward and we are eager to see our customers' reaction."
Key models and improvements to the solver and GUI include:
Advanced meshing techniques
Sediment transport and erosion
New k-omega turbulence model
