Prometech has released the particle-based simulation software “Particleworks Ver. 7.2.0”and the granular materials simulation software “Granuleworks Ver.2.2.0”.
Prometech Software, Inc. (CEO: Toshimitsu Fujisawa, Head Office: Tokyo, hereinafter Prometech) has released the particle-based simulation software “Particleworks Ver. 7.2.0” and the granular materials simulation software “Granuleworks Ver.2.2.0”.
Particleworks is a CFD simulation software based on MPS -moving particle simulation- method. By using particles as calculation points without mesh generation, it greatly reduces the number of pre-processing steps such as simulation model creation and simulates complicated liquid behaviors including large-scale deformation of free surfaces such as oil behavior of power train, piston oil cooling, vehicles driving into the flooded road, mixing of food, chemicals and resin, debris and concrete flow, and tsunami runup, etc. Because of such simulation capabilities, Particleworks has been attracting attention in various fields including automotive, machinery, electric, material, food, chemical, biomedical, energy, and civil engineering industries all over the world.
Granuleworks is a granular material simulation software based on the discrete element method (DEM) theory. It can be used for manufacturing processes using powders, powder processing, and design and improvement of powder equipment for various fields including food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, transport equipment, and electronic materials. Besides, by coupling with Particleworks, it can also simulate bubbles’ behavior in liquid.
【 New capabilities of Particleworks 】
■Finite Volume Method (FVM) calculation performance improvement
The airflow analysis function using FVM: Calculation speed and accuracy have been greatly improved, and various boundary conditions and steady-state analysis functions have been added.
FVM and conjugate heat transfer (CHT) analysis functions can support single-process multi-GPU analysis, which is allowing for larger-scale airflow and thermal analysis.
The post-processing functions improved, including additional mapping options and flow measurement methods.
