Parameter -np should correspond to the number of threads.
ESyS-Particle is Open Source software for particle-based
numerical modelling. The software implements the Discrete Element Method
(DEM), a widely used technique for modelling processes involving large
deformations, granular flow and/or fragmentation. ESyS-Particle is designed
for execution on parallel supercomputers, clusters or multi-core PCs running a
Linux-based operating system. The C++ simulation engine implements spatial
domain decomposition via the Message Passing Interface (MPI). A Python wrapper
API provides flexibility in the design of numerical models, specification of
modelling parameters and contact logic, and analysis of simulation data.
ESyS-Particle has been used to simulate earthquake nucleation, comminution in
shear cells, silo flow, rock fragmentation, and fault gouge evolution, to name
but a few applications.
