Nov. 2, 2011 - PRLog -- Flow Science, Inc. announces the availability of a new release of FLOW-3D/MP, the distributed memory version of its flagship CFD software, FLOW-3D. FLOW-3D/MP v4.2 features hybrid parallelization that incorporates MPI and OpenMP architecture and offers users a substantial increase in performance with scaling to as many as 256 cores and runtime improvements of as much as 60x over the comparable FLOW-3D release. The high performance computing software features the following benefits:

•   Developed for the latest multi-core architecture
•   Increased speed-up and accuracy, using fewer mesh blocks and reduced MPI communication
•   Directional decomposition, improved performance with thread scheduling and dynamic thread balancing
•   Scaling up to 256 cores

The physical models in FLOW-3D/MP 4.2 are based on FLOW-3D v9.4. Read a complete list of FLOW-3D/MP 4.2 features at: http://www.flow3d.com/pdfs/brochures/WEB-FLOW-3D-MP-v4.2-....

FLOW-3D/MP, first released by Flow Science 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 v4.2 has been tested extensively on both Windows (Server 2008 and 2008 R2) 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.
