Flow Science, Inc. has announced 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 performance improvements of up to 40x on 64 processor cores, according to the company. 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 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.

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 on both Windows Server 2008 and Linux systems (RHEL 4 & 5 and SUSE 10 &11).
