Additive Manufacturing

A cutting-edge research tool, FLOW-3D AM simulates and analyzes additive manufacturing processes such as laser powder bed fusion, binder jetting, and directed energy deposition.


FLOW-3D provides high fidelity modelling for understanding the effects of surface tension, wall adhesion, solute transport, density-driven flows, and phase change.


Free surface hydrodynamics, wave generation, moving objects, mooring lines and welding processes make FLOW-3D an extremely well-suited tool to model CFD processes relevant to the maritime industry.


FLOW-3D provides aerospace engineers valuable insight into fuel stability/acquisition, cryogenic temperature regulation, PMDs, cavitation, and electric charge distribution.

Consumer Products

From toilet flushing to bottle filling to food processing, FLOW-3D is the optimal CFD software for the researching and designing of consumer products for home and office environments.

Metal Casting

With 11 process workspaces, powerful post-processing, pioneering capabilities in filling and solidification and defect analysis, FLOW-3D CAST is the optimal metal casting solution.


FLOW-3D offers solutions to automotive engineers for fuel tank sloshing, underhood thermal management and spray control, early fuel shut-off during fill, degas bottles, fluid resistance of powertrain components, and casting of automotive parts.


Use FLOW-3D to maximize the safety and efficiency of fuel extraction, storage and transport techniques and nuclear energy infrastructure, and develop alternative energy projects such as offshore wind and wave energy.

Micro/Nano/Bio Fluidics

Micro-, bio- and nano-fluidics can be easily and accurately simulated in a virtual laboratory employing FLOW-3D’s free surface and multi-fluid modelling capabilities.


FLOW-3D is a robust simulation tool for biotech research, with an extensive range of capabilities, including free-surface/confined flows, variable density, phase change, moving objects, and mechanical and thermal stress analysis.

Laser Welding

FLOW-3D WELD implements relevant physics such as laser heat sources, laser-material interaction, fluid flow, heat transfer, surface tension, solidification, multiple laser reflections and phase change, allowing researchers to achieve better welding process control.

Civil & Environmental

FLOW-3D is used to address a wide range of issues facing the civil & environmental industry, from large hydroelectric power projects, low-head dams, municipal wastewater and stormwater infrastructure, and mining tailings storage.


FLOW-3D accurately predicts the detail of severe storm and tsunami wave run-up on coastal structures and is used for flash flood and critical structures flood and damage analysis.

FLOW-3D is an accurate, fast, proven CFD software that solves the toughest free-surface flow problems. A pioneer in the CFD industry, and a trusted leader for over 40 years, FLOW-3D is a highly efficient, comprehensive solution for free-surface flow problems with human-centric support. Flow Science UK is the official distributor of FLOW-3D products for customers in the United Kingdom and Ireland.



AILU is run by and for the laser community. Its membership is made up of laser users in industry and academia as well as by manufacturers and suppliers of lasers and laser-related equipment and services. Our corporate members include many leading players in the laser materials community.

The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) was established in 2010 as an independent Research & Technology Organisation (RTO) with the objective of bridging the gap between academia and industry – often referred to as ‘the valley of death’. Read our new member announcement!

Additive Manufacturing UK (AM-UK) exists to establish the UK as a world leader in the development and adoption of Additive and 3D Printing technology.  In 2020 AM-UK became part of the wider Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) family. The MTA is now in the process of developing the services which will benefit and drive forward the AM and 3D Printing community in the UK.
