PhasicFlowPlus is a software solution that simulates the flow of fluids and particles. It uses a combination of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and discrete element method (DEM) to achieve this. The software assumes the fluid is a continuous phase while the particles are treated as separate entities.
PhasicFlow handles DEM calculations and is capable of parallel processing on multi-core CPUs or GPUs. OpenFOAM is used to discretize the equations for the fluid phase based on finite volume (FV) and solve them. OpenFOAM is parallelized using MPI for execution on multi-core CPUs. The software's fluid-particle coupling leverages both shared-memory and MPI parallelization techniques to make the most of available computational resources. With this setup, PhasicFlowPlus can utilize a multi-core CPU or a computer with both CPU and GPUs to optimize its performance.
The development includes:
- The coupling interface between phasicFlow and OpenFOAM
- The coupled solvers
- A range of tutorials for the solvers
- And the source code for further development
Download phasicFlowPlus and enjoy the power of parallel computing in the world of particle loaded fluids.
