News Barracuda version 12.1 with new features that broaden its use for engineering applications to particle flow behavior in diverse industrial unit operations was released on March 20, 2008.

Built upon proprietary CPFD technology, the software accurately treats discrete particulate solids of any size-distribution flowing with dilute-to-dense loadings in a gas or liquid system.

Proven applications are broad across petrochemical, chemical, power generation, and material processing, such as risers, cyclones, deep-bed reactors, CFB power plants, coal or biomass gasifiers, and filtration/settling.

Version 12.1 includes numerous enhancements: treatment of wall-particle interactions including attrition, LES turbulence and wall shear, the ability to dynamically re-read flow boundary conditions, and implicit treatment of liquid-solid flows.

Users requested special graphics to help understand their complex, three-dimension flows containing millions of particles; the graphical output now includes time-averaged particles and fluid mass flux.

Testing of this new version was the most thorough ever, and included large-scale experimental data from the PSRI.
