New in PFC 7.0

PFC 7.0 is officially released!

Features in this version open new realms of possibilities for granular, manufacturing, and soil simulation applications, as well as bonded-block modeling (BBM)—including fragmentation.

The latest version of PFC provides enhancements for modeling capabilities, faster solutions with multi-threaded FISH, and many new contact models.



A few more new features and capabilities include:

  • Stress installation schemes for ball and rigid block packings.
  • Support for the SOLVE CONVERGENCE command. This is a solve limit based on the maximum convergence value of all contacts in the model. The convergence value for a contact is defined as the ratio of the current mechanical force ratio to the target force ratio of the contact.
  • A PFC 7 for Linux OS is now available. This is a signal development for users who wish to run PFC on AWS and on high-performance Linux computers.
