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 until 2013 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. The main persons working on CFDEM®project are Core developers Project members A large number of people worldwide from both academia and industry have contributed to bring CFDEM®project to where it is now - thanks to everyone who joins us on this way!
