NOGRID FPM is a commercial CFD code. It is a product of NOGRID GmbH.
Current version is 3.61 (at Okt. 1, 2008).
Nogrid'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.
The FPM (Finite Pointset Method) software is based on the so called particle method. Contrary to classical methods this method requires no mesh for the discretization of differential equations. FPM points are automatically filled, moved, refilled and cleaned depending on user specifications. The point cloud can be defined variously, e.g. constant in the whole flow domain, changing with time or increasing/decreasing locally depending on the flow/geometry situation.
