Particleworks is a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software package developed by Prometech Software, Inc. in Japan. It is based on advanced fluid dynamics analysis method known as the Moving Particle Simulation (MPS) method. In this method, the fluid is represented as a collection of particles. This allows Particleworks to simulate the movement of fluids precisely and stably. Furthermore, it allows Particleworks to simulate free surfaces, as well as the interaction between 2 different fluids, such as oil and water.
In addition, Particleworks supports multi-GPU computing. Thus, it is capable of simulating from hundreds of thousands to millions of fluid particles, allowing it to simulate very large-scale models. As a result, when Particleworks is coupled with a Multi body dynamics simulation software package, it becomes suitable for co-simulation of CFD simulation and MBD simulation. And thus, through co-simulation with RecurDyn, you can further broaden the application scopes of both software packages. (Both of MBD and CFD Simulation)
RecurDyn’s unique ParticleWorks interface allows you to easily perform co-simulation of solid and fluid dynamics.
Particleworks allows you to directly import 3D data from CAD software for defining the volume boundaries. Various boundary conditions and material properties can be applied to imported data. You can view or output the simulation results in various formats.
Since the fluid dynamics solver uses the MPS method, it allows you to mix various material properties of fluid, rigid, and powder. (However, the rigid-powder mixing is not supported.)
The solver also allows you to calculate shear rate and torque, etc. from velocity, pressure, and temperature of fluid.
Particleworks supports running its solver on a multi-GPU system. 2D fluid simulations are also available.
