BlogAbout SimScaleSimScale Platform Update 10/2014: Discrete Particle Analysis

A discrete particle analysis type and plenty of new features have been added to the SimScale simulation platform since the last product update. Find the details below and test the features today!

Mesh Creator

Multiple robustness improvements

Through constant evaluation and feedback from our active users, the meshing operations of the SimScale platform have been made significantly more robust, as well as faster in execution. The improvements include a better choice of default values, as well as an improved feature detection regarding the used CAD model.

Simulation Designer

Advanced fluid flow boundary conditions

Two new boundary conditions for fluid flow simulations have been integrated. The profile boundary condition, for example, allows the user to assign a physical quantity that varies over the exact position of a patch. Additionally, it is now possible to assign boundary conditions that vary in time.

Discrete particle analysis

A new type of analysis has been included to allow the simulation of bulk material. The discrete element solver helps users to simulate industrial applications for bulk material processing, such as mixing mills, as shown in the image below.
