Based in Santa Fe, New Mexico USA, Flow Science was founded in 1980 by Dr. C. W. (Tony) Hirt, who was one of the principals in pioneering the “Volume-of-Fluid” or VOF method while working at the Los Alamos National Lab. FLOW-3D is a direct descendant of this work, and in the subsequent years, we have increased its sophistication with TruVOF, boasting pioneering improvements in the speed and accuracy of tracking distinct liquid/gas interfaces. Today, Flow Science products offer complete multiphysics simulation with diverse modeling capabilities including fluid-structure interaction, 6-DoF moving objects, and multiphase flows. From inception, Flow Science vision has been to provide its customers with excellence in flow modeling software and services:
“To be the only solution that engineers worldwide look to for answers to their free-surface problems; to deliver those answers accurately, quickly, and easily.”
Modeling complex flow domains accurately requires specialized techniques. Flow Science is committed to providing expert technical support to each of our customer’s specific modeling needs. As a result, FLOW-3D products expose a significant portion of its program to user interaction, avoiding a ‘black box’ approach employed by other CFD packages, and allowing for more diverse applications. Flow Science is proud to support a stellar customer base of commercial, academic, and government users around the globe who use FLOW-3D to improve the world on a daily basis. Flow Science is taking care of these users directly, and through a high-quality channel of subsidiaries (Flow Science Japan, Flow Science Deutschland GmbH, Flow Science Software Trading Co., Ltd., Flow Science Latin America SAS, Flow Science United Kingdom, Flow Science India and Flow Science Australasia) and independent partners.
