Particleworks is a fluid analysis software using particle method, a new analysis method that does not require mesh generation.
In particular, by expressing the fluid into numerous particles using the MPS (Moving Particle simulation) method, it is possible to stably analyze the movement of various liquids, including free surface problems such as water droplets with high accuracy, and Navier-Stokes, which is the basic equation of fluid analysis. Equations are efficiently discretized through the “gradient model” and “laplacian model”.
Introduction to the interpretation
Pre-processing, analysis and post-processing in one environment (Seamless Interface!)
Particleworks is CAE software that enables easy manipulation of pre-processing, analysis, and post-processing through a single GUI. In addition, the ultra-high speed simulation is realized by using the GPU calculation function.
Analysis Process Using Particleworks
Significantly reduced pretreatment work!
New user interface and faster performance
Particleworks can handle pre-processing, analysis, and post-processing not only on Windows but also on Linux, and can directly manipulate and verify the results on Linux without moving the analysis results on Linux to a Windows PC.
Robust Analysis of Nonlinear Flows Including Free Surfaces
Particleworks has strengths in the problem that it takes a lot of time in the simulation method using mesh such as gear oil injection analysis and resin mixture analysis in the engine.
Enhanced processing of complex geometries
Improved distance function generation algorithms for preprocessing can automatically simplify complex polygon shapes. Automated parts have been automated so far to avoid particles from entering into the walls or gaps on polygons.
Co-simulation support between Particleworks (fluid analysis) and RecurDyn (dynamic analysis)
Co-simulation of Particleworks and RecurDyn makes it possible to analyze fluid motion in more realistic motions. For example, in the analysis of the behavior of lubricating oil in the housing of the chain system, it is possible to accurately simulate the degree of oil leakage or oil scattering caused by the movement of the chain.
Great for agitating and mixing materials and moving boundary problems!
The stirring blade shape created in CAD can be used as analysis boundary data as it is, so that problems with complicated boundary shapes can be easily analyzed.
Faster and more accurate simulation with the latest GPUs
Particleworks enables high speed simulation using GPUs. The analysis time, which has caused many bottlenecks, can be greatly shortened, thus enabling analysis work using a PC without expensive supercomputers or HPC servers.
