Rocky is becoming more flexible than ever before. Since Rocky DEM 4.4, we’ve given users the freedom to customize the code and interact with Rocky’s core solver by means of its differentiated application programming interface (API). Built to dynamically generate visual interfaces, provide a single code for multi-CPU and multi-GPU solvers, and ensure no performance degeneration, Rocky’s API enables users to extend existing modules, create new ones, and deploy company-specific solutions that can access all solver-level data. As soon as the modules are compiled, they can be delivered as out-of-the-box solutions to customers or in-house users.
Rocky 4.5 more than doubled the number of available solver hooks. Now users can create custom breakage and impact energy models, custom wear models, and even change the way Rocky computes conductive heat transfer. The cherry on top of the cake for this release is, however, the CFD coupling subset of the API:Solver along with the ability to create custom fluid scalars.
This webinar offers users an overview of the new API:Solver features as well as showing how easy it is to extend Rocky models. As an example, the CFD-coupled particle drying model will be explained in detail.
