News CD-adapco, a world leader in full-Spectrum flow, thermal, and stress simulation solutions, announces the availability of a powerful coupled-analysis capability for fluid-structure interaction (FSI) utilizing STAR-CD, their technology-leading Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software, and ABAQUS, from the SIMULIA brand of Dassault Systèmes (DS), a world leader in 3D and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions.

This new FSI solution builds on the strategy of CD-adapco to partner with best-in-class technology providers, such as SIMULIA, to deliver a broad range of multiphysics simulation solutions. The bi-directional coupling leverages a strong partnership with Dassault Systèmes and the independent, open solution for the coupling—MpCCI software from Fraunhofer SCAI—to enable STAR-CD and ABAQUS to work together to solve a wide range of important FSI problems.

"Multiphysics simulation such as FSI is increasingly important," says Ken Short, VP of strategy and marketing at SIMULIA. "It allows engineers to replicate and predict realistic physical behavior of complex systems where the interactions of fluid and structural responses are significant. Our customers will benefit tremendously from our open platform approach which enables them to easily integrate, fully supported best-in-class technology."

"This new solution provides the most powerful FSI technology available on the market,” states Dennis Nagy, VP of marketing and Business Development at CD-adapco. “Companies using our coupled solution will dramatically improve collaboration between fluid dynamics engineers and structural engineers. This will enable them to gain a greater understanding of system behavior and a competitive edge in delivering innovative inventions and products to market.”

The new offering allows manufacturers and researchers in automotive, aerospace, off-shore, biomedical, consumer, and process industries to study the influence of fluid flow-induced forces and heat transfer on structural integrity as well as the impact of nonlinear material response on fluid flow behavior. This functionality allows them to evaluate a broad range of conditions, such as flow-induced vibrations in structures, in-vivo vascular flows, valve dynamics, tire aquaplaning, and fluid-structure applications in consumer goods and packaging.
