Two-way strong coupling between Finite Element solver Oofelie and Open with OpenLabs™
ONE SINGLE ENVIRONMENT
With FSI-OOFELIE, users can set-up and start complete FSI simulations using only one software. FSI-OOFELIE couples the Finite Element solver Oofelie of Open Engineering with NUMECA’s fast and accurate parallel flow solver Open with OpenLabs™ into one single environment.
The workflow is handled by the SAMCEF Field generic interface.
TWO-WAY STRONG COUPLING
The direct coupling, carried out within one single environment, allows for great gains in set-up time and reliability.
EASY TO INSTALL
The installation process requires only one step.
FSI-OOFELIE is a fully integrated solution for strongly coupled fluid-structure interaction simulations. It is developed in collaboration with Open Engineering, combining the latest technology in Multiphysics, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Mechanics design.
A FULLY INTEGRATED ENVIRONMENT FOR FLUID STRUCTURE INTERACTION:
A strong coupling approach is considered, allowing to verify the equations of all physical models at each time step. Strong coupling of multiphysics phenomena reveals much more information than just consecutive simulations. It ensures fast convergence and solution stability, while simulating multi-unstable environments. A staggered approach is used with two solvers ensuring the most efficient method for each field.
