Computer simulations are an indispensable tool in the design of products and production processes. Virtual models replace real models. In the creation of this virtual world, mathematics is a key technology. At Fraunhofer, we combine mathematical modeling with HPC expertise to provide powerful simulation tools.

In common simulation workflows, the preprocessing step consisting of mesh generation and adaption is very time consuming. It leads to increasing costs in product development. With MESHFREE, we provide a solution to overcome this bottleneck. The simulation tool follows an innovative point cloud approach, avoiding meshes, and thus enabling engineers to design their products much faster.

MESHFREE is a Powerful Simulation Tool for:

  • fluid dynamics
  • continuum mechanics
  • multiphase scenarios

From the automotive sector to production, simulations and digital twins are crucial to many companies. Because conventional software is often inadequate at modeling highly dynamic processes, our researchers have developed MESHFREE. This solution works without a rigid computational grid and can save a great deal of time when simulating complex processes, and it also cuts costs. Our efforts have now earned us the 2024 Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize.
