DualSPHysics v4.0 released
The DualSPHysics team are pleased to announce the release of DualSPHysics v4.0 that includes the C++ and CUDA source files of the SPH solver..
To download the DualSPHysics package, documentation and source files, visit the DualSPHysics website http://dual.sphysics.org/index.php/downloads/.
There, you will find these new files:
- DUALSPHYSICS DOCUMENTATION:
- DUALSPHYSICS PACKAGE:
News in the current release:
- Source files with GPL license.
- Complete documentation using Doxygen.
- New CPU structure that mimics the GPU threads.
- OpenMP is now optimized for execution in multi-core CPU machines; an efficiency of 94% is achieved using 32 cores.
- New automatic estimation of the optimum block size of CUDA kernels.
- Implementation using double precision where necessary.
- Improved formulation for adding external forces (now includes all relative rotational acceleration terms)
- A prescribed movement can be loaded from an external file with defined rotation time series like already exists for translation.
- Source files of the coupled SPH & DEM.
- Executable of the Multi-Phase code for soil-water (source code to following v4.2)
- Novel Shifting algorithm.
- Automatic wave generation (regular and random waves).
- More powerful GenCase.
- The new postprocessing tool ComputeForces is provided to compute the force exerted by the fluid onto a solid object (fixed or floating
- The new code FloatingInfo allows to obtain different variables of interest of the floating objects during the simulation; positions of the center, linear velocity, angular velocity, motions (surge, sway and heave) and angles of rotation (pitch, roll and yaw).
- New version allows user to define intervals of time with different output time to save results.
- Post-processing tools are now designed to deal with variables defined by the user.
