CFD-DEM Simulations

Particle-laden systems often require the simultaneous solution of the fluid field, particle fields, and interactions between the two phases. The GPU-based implementation of M-Star CFD software makes large-scale simulations of such systems accessible and practical.


Most biologic processes are developed in lab-scale, tabletop bioreactors with small operating volumes. M-Star helps you build, run, and post-process simulations for real-world, production-sized bioreactors that can hold up to tens-of-thousands of liters.

Scaling Up Bioreactors

Agitated Tanks

Mixing processes in multi-fluid systems present more complicated competition between fluid inertia and buoyancy. M-Star CFD software helps you model and predict real-time fluid mechanics with greater speed and fidelity than ever before.

Free Surface Dynamics

Free-surface systems are topologically complex and almost always time-varying. The transient, high-resolution simulation accessible using M-Star CFD software provides detailed insights into the sloshing, vortexing, and rocking that characterize these systems.
