Meshless cfd
Hi Everyone

I am interested in learning more about these meshless methods for cfd.
I am particularly interested in incompressible viscous flows.
Could someone point me to some links or reference material?

Karalit cfd
Hello Sam

Actually KARALIT is a 3D CFD that is mesh less, making use of the Immersed Boundary Method.
Please check for a free 2D download.
Also if you contact me directly I can send you a list of White Papers on the Immersed Boundary Method.

I guess the original poster replied to his own post in order to do some sneaky advertising. ;)

On Topic: The wiki page on SPH gives links to useful sites with free software as well as theory.

Sorry but do not accept such comment
Dear Ford Prefect
I am a serious professional and I get offended by your post.
The user (smanekshaw) asked a specific question on meshless software and, as representative of KARALIT, I replied him with a couple of suggestions on how to learn more about mesh less software.
It was not an advertisement nor I use such sneaky tactics you alluded to.

We are all professionals, so let's keep this forum at the same professional level.

Ok, I just found it curious that both the original poster and the reply have exactly one post each and both have accounts created at the same time, well perhaps you were waiting for the specific question to pop up in order to register. Welcome to CFD Online :p

There are some books now, search for "meshfree" on amazon.

For meshfree CFD, search for papers of Deshpande, Ghosh, Morinishi, Lohner, Katz, Jameson, Anandhanarayanan, etc.
