Fluent and ABAQUS to Deliver Coupled Fluid-Structure Analysis Capability
Posted Tue December 23, 2003 @05:05PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent Inc., the leading provider of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation software and services, and ABAQUS, Inc., the leading supplier of software and services for advanced finite element structural analysis (FEA), announced today the formation of a strategic technology initiative to develop and support coupled fluid-structure simulation capability. The collaboration will leverage the best-in-class tools of each company to deliver co-simulation capability for fluid-structure interaction (FSI), enabling manufacturers to address complex design problems in the automotive, aerospace, biomedical, and process industries among others.

Currently, engineering analysis of stress and thermal effects in structures is typically performed in isolation from the analysis of fluid flow phenomena, despite the impact of flow-induced forces and heat transfer on a structure and the impact of a structure on the fluid. The Fluent-ABAQUS initiative will provide engineers with easy-to-use tools that will take into account these important coupling effects including sophisticated simulation of nonlinear structural responses.

The co-simulation capability is expected to address applications such as fan blade flutter, microfluidics, in-vivo vascular flows, and flow-induced vibrations in structures and equipment, as well as many consumer goods design and packaging applications.

"Implementation of co-simulation using FLUENT and ABAQUS will provide our customers with an outstanding coupled fluid-structure solution," notes Paul Bemis, Fluent's VP of Product Management. "Many of our customers’ most challenging design problems require assessment of interactions between fluid and structure. By teaming with ABAQUS, Inc. we will provide a solution based on industry-leading best-in-class technologies. "

“ABAQUS is extremely pleased to be working closely with Fluent, who are a recognized leader in CFD,” notes Ken Short, VP of Marketing at ABAQUS, Inc. “Our joint customers need robust, reliable solutions to real world simulation challenges. This initiative is a significant step toward a practical and useable FSI capability from two of the most respected solution providers in the software industry.”
