fpi is open-source software for engineers and technicians working in the fields of chemical or mechanical engineering. It includes modules for various fluid-particle interaction calculations..
The fpi library depends on the SciPy library to provide numerical constants, interpolation, integration, and numerical solving functionality. fpi runs on all operating systems which support Python, is quick to install, and is free of charge. fpi is designed to be easy to use while still providing powerful functionality. If you need to perform some fpi calculations, give fpi a try.
