SimScale Platform Update 12/2014: Discrete Phase Model

Discrete phase model analysis type and new features became available on the SimScale platform! Find out more about the new Platform Update below.

Discrete phase model

With the new analysis type ‘Discrete phase’ you can simulate the transport of a discrete phase within an incompressible fluid flow. The phase consists of an arbitrary number of particles that interact with the flow and each other.

More filter functionality

Especially for the new particle analysis types, the glyph filter has been significantly enhanced. You can use it to conveniently visualize the movement of the particles.
