Particle based in-house Code: ShonDy 

Name ShonDy
Beschreibung: shonDy is a high-performance 3D computational fluid dynamics software based on the Lagrangian approach. A general geometry CAD file can be used as an input data to start the simulation, while the complicated mesh generation is not required. More freedom of simulation can be obtained by breaking the restriction of mesh. In shonDy, the fluid and solid bodies can be discretized into the moving element, which allows for a complete coupling between the solid objects and all kinds of free surface flows. The main simulation functions of the code include the flow of viscous fluid, the fluid and solid interaction, heat convection and conduction, as well as the deformation of elastic bodies. The code has a wide potential application in the engineering and industrial fields.
