DesignSPHysics enables the user to create cases with solids and fluids and exports it to a DualSPHysics compatible format. In addition, it does the hard work for the user, generating the case data automatically, simulating, and post-processing, all inside FreeCAD.
It includes support for pre-processing with GenCase, simulation with DualSPHysics and post-processign with several tools of the DualSPHysics package.
In the future the code will be modular, so integration with different SPH solvers can be used. Right now it's optimized to be used with DualSPHysics
It is developed as a FreeCAD module with a macro bootstrapper, in Python 3.5+, using the QT libraries via PySide.
To install DesignSPHysics you have 2 options: Using the FreeCAD Addon manager for an stable version, or installing manually whatever version that you like from git.
Installing a release version
To install a release version, open FreeCAD 0.18+ and go to the menu Macro -> Macros... From there, press the Addons... button on the bottom right corner, search for DesignSPHysics and click Install / Update. FreeCAD will advise you to reboot the application and you'll be set.
Take in mind that as it includes DualSPHysics, the package may take a while to download.
To execute DesignSPHysics just open the same Macro dialog and double click DualSPHysics.
Installing a development build
Clone the branch that you like from this repository and rename the folder to 'DesignSPHysics'. Then copy the folder to the Mod folder of the FreeCAD installation directory.
By default, for example, in Windows, it is located in
%appdata%/FreeCAD/Mod or in Linux in
Then copy the file
DesignSPHysics.FCMacro of this repository into the FreeCAD macro directory (
%appdata%/FreeCAD/Macro on Windows;
~/.FreeCAD/Macro on GNU/Linux)
