Prometech Software, Inc. (Head office: Tokyo, CEO: Fujisawa Toshimitsu, hereafter Prometech) and ANSYS, Inc. (Head office: Canonsburg, PA, President and CEO: Ajei Gopal, hereafter ANSYS) jointly announced their collaboration to bring more wide-ranging multiphysics simulation solutions to the market, during the Prometech Simulation Conference.
The partnership enables users to perform multiphysics fluid phenomena calculations with Particleworks, while realizing improved interactive environments with ANSYS products.
Prometech provides simulation solutions for large free surface flow and splashing/spraying flow with its unique mesh-free particle method known as the MPS (Moving Particle Simulation) Method. The coupling between Particleworks and ANSYS structural simulation solutions empower users to simulate complex multi-physics phenomena, whereas the coupling of Particleworks with ANSYS fluid simulation solution allows users to simulate realistic air-liquid phenomena.
Embedding Particleworks in the ANSYS® Workbench™ environment enables key features, such as the calculation of structure deformation caused by fluid pressure and structure heat transfer by use of the heat transfer coefficient.
“The coupling solution between ANSYS and Particleworks will bring enormous benefits to many engineers in product design and development,” stated Dr. T. Fujisawa, founder and CEO, Prometech Software, Inc. “Particleworks is becoming a new standard meshfree CFD software which enables a wide range of engineers to employ CFD as an intuitive tool. While partnering with ANSYS provides a wider range of simulation approaches to coupled phenomena. I believe the user-friendly operability of coupled analysis using Particleworks on the ANSYS Workbench platform will bring a significant paradigm shift at the early design stage.”
"There is considerable customer demand for modeling flows with significant free surface motion, including splashing and kneading. ANSYS collaborated with with Prometech Software Inc. to provide fast insights using Prometech’s advanced particle-based simulator available in Particleworks." said Dr. S. Subbiah, Vice President, Global Product Operations / Fluids Product Management at ANSYS, Inc. "Prometech has enabled coupling between Particleworks and ANSYS Fluent software and ANSYS Mechanical software to model coupled phenomena."

Prometech Software, Inc. (Head office: Tokyo; Fujisawa Toshimitsu, CEO; hereafter Prometech), FunctionBay, Inc. (Head office: Pangyo, KOREA; Michael Jang, CEO; hereafter FunctionBay), and Rescale, Inc. (Head office: San Francisco; Joris Poort, CEO) are pleased to announce that Particleworks and RecurDyn are now available on Rescale’s platform for HPC in the cloud. By running Particleworks and RecurDyn on Rescale’s ScaleX platform, engineers can instantly perform massive-scale fluid dynamics and multi-body coupling simulations on the latest HPC hardware including GPUs and InfiniBand. Users can execute large-scale simulations without resource constraints, thereby accelerating simulation turnaround time, enabling full design space exploration, and shortening time to market.
Particleworks, provided by Prometech, is a leading software for simulating the movement of fluids including large free surface deformation which is considered to be very difficult to simulate. Prometech’s cutting-edge, particle-based simulator makes it easy to create and analyze 3D models in a variety of industrial contexts ‒ from oil sloshing of powertrains, cooling of engine oil and motors, and car driving in flooded roads for the automotive industry to mixing and kneading for medicine and plastics. With an intuitive interface, an ultra-fast solver, and powerful visualization tools, Particleworks supports effective product development and design optimization. Its state-of-the-art and user-friendly capabilities have been highly praised around the world. Now Particleworks has been introduced to a wide range of industries in many countries around Asia, Europe, and America.
RecurDyn, provided by FunctionBay, is an interdisciplinary, computer-aided engineering (CAE) software package whose primary function is the simulation of multibody dynamics (MBD). RecurDyn simulates both rigid and flexible body dynamics by combining traditional rigid MBD with cutting-edge finite element technology for modeling flexible bodies. In addition, RecurDyn also includes a tightly-integrated controller design tool, design optimization, particle dynamics for granular materials, and durability and fatigue analysis. RecurDyn also supports co-simulation with various other computer-aided engineering software tools. RecurDyn is widely used by more than 450 companies in more than 30 countries around the world in a variety of fields including automotive, general machinery, defense, construction, and aerospace to predict and analyze the behavior of the moving machines.
