About CFDEM®project

Dedicated to open source high performance scientific computing in fluid mechanics and particle science.

Particles and flow processes are everywhere - in industry, environment and everyday life

Sugar, sand, ores, tablets, chemicals, biomass, detergents, plastics, crops, fruits need to be harvested, produced, processed, transported and stored. CFDEM®project is an open source software project for computational simulation engines, for these particle and fluid flow processes.Most notably, we develop the LIGGGHTS® and CFDEM®coupling simulation engines.

The project consists of
DCS Computing as main developer and hoster of CFDEM®project, offering commercial products and services,
The group of Stefan Radl at TU Graz, currently the main scientific contributor
The Department of Particulate Flow Modelling at JKU Linz as scientific birthplace and major contributor
and - of course - a variety of contributions from the community. Every contribution is mentioned in the release notes. Thanks a lot!

Please read our note about "Open source, Science and Commerical Interests".
Everyone is welcome to get involved and contribute, more information can be found here.

Work from all across the CFDEM®project community is very diverse, some snapshots can be found here.
