Particle-based simulations for your applications
SimPARTIX® stands for our competence in modeling the mechanics of materials and fluids using mesh-free methods.
SimPARTIX® is also an innovative and powerful simulation tool developed at the Fraunhofer IWM.
Based on physical models, SimPARTIX® is used to investigate various materials in manufacturing processes and in service. This typically generates a large amount of data on the dynamical material behavior. By means of detailed analyses and visualizations of the data we provide in-depth insights into the fundamental dynamics of your processes. SimPARTIX® can therefore help you to grasp a full understanding of your applications and yield design specific optimization measures.
SimPARTIX® has been successfully applied to problems from the following areas.
- Powder technology: Prediction of density distributions for die filling and compaction; Determination of anisotropy properties for tape casting; Description of sedimentation during drying; Avoidance of crack formation during sintering
- Tribology: Study of failure mechanisms of magnetorheological clutches; Abrasive machining of surfaces
- Photovoltaics: Minimization of kerf loss during wire sawing of silicon wafers
- Microelectronics: Reduction of track widths for screen printing of multi-layer circuits
Furthermore, SimPARTIX® is suited for the simulation of applications from the following fields.
- Bulk goods transport
- Foodstuffs industry
