Announcements The 10th MpCCI User Forum will be held February 17 - 18, 2009 in Sankt Augustin, Germany.

Coupling of different simulation codes, each specialized for a specific physical regime, is becoming more and more important for numerical simulations, both in industry and in research. The reason is that in many real-world applications the interaction of different physical phenomena must be taken into consideration in order to achieve high-quality predictions.

The MpCCI User Forum 2009 will show the latest developments and applications in multi-disciplinary simulation coupling.

Print version Email story Tweet story
Application In a recent project, JAXA wanted to improve the design of a new generation of its rocket pump for the LE-7 LOX turbopump used in the H-II rocket. The aim of the design was to achieve high energy density for the centrifugal pump (i.e. to achieve the same head and flow rate with a compact size pump under the same rotational speed as the original) in order to reduce the weight and cost of the rocket turbo pump.
