We are pleased to announce the release of new packages of DualSPHysics (v3.2) that includes the executable of the multi-phase code by Fourtakas et al. (2014) that deals with two-phase liquid-solid problems with flow-induced erosion of fully saturated sediment. The model predicts multi-phase sediment scouring phenomena that are induced by rapid flows creating shear forces at the surface of the sediment which causes the surface to yield and produce a shear layer of sediment suspended particles at the interface and finally sediment suspension in the fluid.
- This is a beta version, so support and stuff on the forum is limited and you should read the readme file ("MPhase_V3.0_Beta_README.txt") and the PDF ("Guide_CaseTwoPhases.pdf") included in the new version.
- A new testcase ("CASETWOPHASES") is also included to be executed with the new executable (“DualSPHysics_win64_MPhase”).
