CD-adapco is the world's largest independent CFD-focused provider of engineering simulation software, support and services. We have over 30 years of experience in delivering industrial strength engineering simulation.
After explaining why simulating a pool break is so difficult in my last blog post, I couldn't resist actually performing the simulation using Discrete Element Modelling in STAR-CCM+ .
In the interests of full disclosure, I should confess that (despite my own advice ) this simulation:
However, despite being a monumental waste of computing resources, this simulation does help to resolve the central question posed in my Blog: the reason that I am so bad at pool, is that I wasted my youth doing geeky CFD simulations rather than hanging around in smokey bars playing pool.
