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.
By running Particleworks and RecurDyn on the Rescale ScaleX platform,. engineers can accelerate their analyses using unlimited cores and the latest hardware architectures. In addition, customers can use Rescale’s ScaleX platform to collaborate seamlessly with team members and customers. Rescale meets the industry's most stringent security standards, such as SOC 2 Type 2, ITAR, and HIPAA, as well offering additional security features including VPN, multi-factor authentication (MFA), IP restrictions, and pre-phase data encryption.
