Flow Science, Inc. has announced the presenters for its 2010 FLOW-3D World Users Conference on Sept. 23-24 at the Hôtel Omni Mont-Royal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The hydropower industry in Canada will be represented with presentations from companies such as Hydro-Quebec, SNC-Lavalin, Hatch and AECOM Tecsult. Other topics include offshore structures, the casting of Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Il Cavallo, and open-cell metallic foams.
A full list of speakers and their topics can be found here.
This year’s conference also marks Flow Science’s 30th year of offering solutions in computational fluid dynamics. In honor of Flow Science’s anniversary, Dr. C.W. “Tony” Hirt, the founder of Flow Science and a continuing contributor to the development of FLOW-3D will deliver the keynote address titled, “Footprints on the Path to Flow Science.”
The conference will also feature a poster session for the first time. Poster topics range from a hybrid modeling approach using a mix of OpenMP and MPI to simulating the wave motion within breakwaters using FLOW-3D.
The conference is open to FLOW-3D users and those interested in learning about the software. Training sessions will be held the day before the conference.
