MPARS (Mesh-free Particle Simulator) is a CFD solver for simulation of fluid flow on the mesh-free Lagrangian frame. The code is based on the MPS (Moving Particle Semi-implicit) method. The code has been developed by Dr. Ahmad Shakibaeinia at the Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science, University of Regina , under supervision of Dr. Yee-Chung Jin . The code has been developed over a number of years. Primarily it was to study free-surface open-boundary flow phenomena with large deformation of boundaries and interfaces where Eulerian methods (such as FEM and FVM) have difficulties. Later, the model the was developed for Multiphase flow, non-Newtonian flow, Granular flow. The model is still development. For more detail see the code features.
