PFC 7.0 is now officially released!
Features in this version open new realms of possibilities for granular, manufacturing, and soil simulation applications as well as bonded-block modeling (BBM), including fragmentation.
The latest version of PFC provides major enhancements for modeling capabilities, faster solutions with multi-threaded FISH, and many new contact models.
A few more new features and capabilities include:
- Stress installation schemes for ball and rigid block packings
- Support for the SOLVE CONVERGENCE command. This is a solve limit based on the maximum convergence value of all contacts in the model. The convergence value for a contact is defined as the ratio of the current mechanical force ratio to the target force ratio of the contact.
- PFC 7 for Linux OS is currently being developed and is expected to be released later this year. This will be especially useful for deployment on AWS and on high-performance Linux computers.
