New Android App “paint2sim” Released

Introducing the app “paint2sim” – A Digital Twin for 2D Fluid Flow Simulations

Paint2sim is a mobile application using a Lattice Boltzmann Method realized by the open-source simulation framework OpenLB. This innovative app allows users to scan hand-drawn domains and visualize 2D fluid flow simulations just-in-time on their mobile devices. Whether you’re a student, researcher, or engineer, explore fluid dynamics with an intuitive interface with your fingertips. The app is freely available for download.

For in-depth technical insights, refer to our latest paper, “Just-in-Time Fluid Flow Simulation on Mobile Devices Using OpenVisFlow and OpenLB

Dennis Teutscher and his team developed the app paint2sim as part of the “teaching4future” project, with funding from the Lattice Boltzmann Research Group at KIT and the Ministry of Science, Research, and Arts of Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

Use Case: Scanning a hand-drawn domain and simulating it on a mobile device
