The Ansys 2023 R2 release of Ansys Rocky pushes particle simulation beyond traditional discrete element modeling (DEM) with cutting-edge smoothed-particle hydrodynamics (SPH) post-processing and expanded multiphysics coupling capabilities.
Additionally, it offers massive performance enhancements and usability improvements, making it the ultimate engineering simulation tool.
Let's look at some of the new features.
Unlock new insights into fluid simulation with state-of-the-art SPH post-processing capabilities.
Improved graphics processing unit (GPU) algorithms empower you to effortlessly handle massive STL files and take on much larger geometries with the Rocky solver.
Unleash the full potential of multiphysics coupling and solve complex problems like never before. Furthermore, there are new modules ready-to-use seamlessly integrate multiple physics for comprehensive simulation and analysis.
This release brings several semi-resolved setup and convergence criteria improvements:
Model single, multi-element fibers with different joint properties, including joint elasticity, plasticity, and breakage, using the new heterogeneous custom fiber module.
Several improvements were made to increase the multiphysics capabilities among Rocky and Ansys tools integration:
