Flow-3D post v2022

n advanced postprocessing tool, FLOW-3D POST delivers sophisticated visualization and analysis for all FLOW-3D products. Powered by the ParaView engine, FLOW-3D POST provides modelers with superior analysis capabilities within an intuitive postprocessing interface. Arbitrary 2D clips along spline pathways, 3D clips and transparencies, volume rendering, advanced data time series plotting and calculators, and streamlines and vector plots are just some of the amazing tools available to users. Combined with a rich feature set of viewport layouts and dynamic object visualization tools, FLOW-3D POST allows engineers to optimize their CFD results for both analysis and presentation needs. ParaView users will appreciate that FLOW-3D POST retains ParaView’s advanced features, while new users will enjoy the simplicity of the user interface and immediate, intuitive success with postprocessing tasks.

What's New in FLOW-3D POST 2023R1

FLOW-3D POST 2023R1 features an updated ParaView engine with native MP4 support, a streamlined Linux installer with automatic dependency testing for easy installation, and support for Windows 11 and RHEL 8.

Units display

Units are a key part of interpreting and communicating the results of engineering analyses. In FLOW-3D POST 2023R1, units are automatically read from the results file and set in the legend for spatial and history plots, making it easy to interpret and communicate simulation results.

Automatic PQ2 plots

FLOW-3D CAST has provided information about HPDC machine performance through PQ2 analysis for many years and we have now extended this capability to support visualization in FLOW-3D POST. The PQ2 information is automatically summarized in a pre-defined plot, so all you need to do is toggle the visibility of the plot to see how the machine is performing for the casting. An additional benefit is that you can also view the data vs. time to see when the pressure exceeds the machine capabilities.
