Analysis of Subsonic Fluid-Structure Interaction and Supersonic Store Separation

Print version Email story Tweet story
Announcements Tecplot Inc. and Fluent Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of ANSYS, Inc., offer this free webinar, Thursday, Nov. 30, to demonstrate the combined power of their respective software solutions in tackling fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems and transient flow problems.

The first example highlighted will be an FSI problem involving a 3D sailplane wing. The flow solution from FLUENT and the structural solution from ANSYS communicate via SCAIís MpCCI routine. The presenters will show how the flow variables and the structural stresses/deformations can be visualized and animated at the same time using Tecplot 360.

The second example will be a store separation from a delta wing at supersonic speed. On the solver side, the motion of the store will be computed using FLUENTís built-in 6DOF solver. Shocks will be captured using dynamic adaption (local refinement of the mesh), and the dynamic mesh will handle the spring deformation and any local remeshing necessary to accommodate the movement of the store within the domain. Tecplot 360ís animation capabilities will be used to visualize the mesh motion, the flow variables, and the shock surfaces.
