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."
