NOGRID FPM is a commercial CFD code. It is a product of NOGRID GmbH.
Current version is 3.1 (at Dez. 1, 2006).
Nogrids's Finite Pointset Method (FPM) is software for simulation tasks in a wide area of flow and continuum mechanical problems. FPM is a particle method, i. e. a grid-free method which, in contrast to classical numerical methods, such as Finite Elements or Finite Volumes, does not require a grid or mesh.
FPM can excellently be applied in the case of all problems, where grid-based methods reach their limits due to the necessary remeshing. Examples are fluid dynamical problems with free surfaces, multiphase flows, fluid-structure interactions with a strong change of the computing domain, or structure mechanical problems with substantial structure changes.
FPM is a most modern technology based on a particle method to solve the Navier-Stokes equations. Using the fast and robust FPM solver the usual long modelling and computing times can be shortened substantially.
