ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW is a well established computer code used to simulate large scale and nonlinear dynamics of spray coating. ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW has unique features like its ability to simulate spray processes on complex shaped 3D models, and the fact that it is open source. ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW is useful for both simulation and analysis.
ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW has been used in many spray coating projects (such as spray painting of aircraft, railroads, roads, bridges, etc). ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW is designed and developed at ASME. It is available for Linux, Windows, and Mac operating systems. ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW is a part of ASME standard SC15-2012. The documentation for this software can be found at
ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW is based on FEM (Finite Element Method). It uses a free type of finite element modeling software to simulate the spray coating dynamics. Free refers to the fact that we do not require any license fees to use the software.
ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW is developed in C++ language. ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW provides us a couple of interfaces: the ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW interface, and the UNICORE interface. We will use the ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW interface to develop our simulation models.
The ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW interface provides the function to read the input data for a simulation, along with the function to create the output data. The output data is exported in a specific format. We have used the export format produced by the Freefem++ library as our output data format. The documentation for Freefem++ can be found at The Freefem++ library is under the GNU General Public License.
The ABAQUS|SPRAYPLOW interface also provides a function to read the input data for a simulation. This function is named check.
The check function reads the input file which contains the variables for the model and the control parameters. It also creates a directory for the output data.
The following is a list of the control parameters:
