Abstract

We focus on the main new developments underway in MercuryDPM. New features include deformable clusters (agglomerates), experimental coarse-graining, melting particles, particle-solid interactions, multi-resolution particle-fluid coupling, pressurecontrolled Lees-Edwards boundaries, better hybrid openMP-MPI parallelisation, and more advanced STL/STEP readers for reading in industrial geometries. Some of these new features will be demonstrated for industrial relevant examples, such as industrial mixers, selective laser sintering, and a tunnel boring machine.
