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.
