Computer simulations are an indispensable tool in the design of products and production processes. Virtual models replace real models. Mathematics is a key technology in the creation of this virtual world. At Fraunhofer, we combine mathematical modeling with HPC expertise to create powerful simulation tools.

In common simulation workflows, the preprocessing step, consisting of mesh generation and adaptation, is very time-consuming. This leads to rising costs in product development. With MESHFREE, we offer a solution to overcome this bottleneck. The simulation tool follows an innovative point cloud approach that avoids meshes and thus enables engineers to design their products much faster.


MESHFREE is a powerful simulation tool for:

  • Fluid dynamics
  • Continuum mechanics
  • Multiphase scenarios
