Options and Add-ons of PFC 7.0

  • FLAC3D. Running coupled models between PFC and FLAC3D is now available.

    With valid licenses for both PFC and FLAC3D, users can now leverage DEM and continuum capabilities, greatly improving the range of problems one can investigate. See the section “Coupling PFC and FLAC3D” for further information.

Backward Compatibility with PFC 6.0

Save files are partially compatible between PFC 6.0 and PFC 7.0. All model data and FISH variables saved in a PFC 6.0 save file can be restored in PFC 7.0. However, FISH functions are not converted and need to be redefined in PFC 7.0. Data files are nearly compatible but there have been a few improvements in syntax.
