An innovative approach to simulate what others can’t
SPH-flow is one of the most advanced Smoothed-Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) solver dedicated to complex Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation developed by Nextflow Software and its academic partners.
The SPH method is part of a new generation of numerical methods, developed to overcome meshing-related constraints with traditional approach while still being based on the Navier-Stokes equations. Classical methods like Finite Volume that require volume meshing are not suitable for many applications such as dynamic flows with complex interfaces, which SPH can address.
Thanks to its Lagrangian characteristic and its particle-based approach, SPH-flow is particularly well suited for high-dynamics flows, deformable and complex boundaries, interfaces with fragmentations/reconnections such as: solid impacts, shocks, breaking waves, jets and splashes, moving parts, deformations…
SPH-flow can solve complex applications, such as: complex topologies and geometries, complex free surface problems, complex physics involving multi-fluid simulations, fluid structure interactions.
