Fluid–Structure Interaction

The flow of fluids through pipe connections, flow meters, valves and distributors — and over airplane wings, turbine blades and other structures — can generate unsteady forces on the surrounding parts that cause them to move. Sometimes this movement is intentional and necessary, and sometimes it is unintentional but unavoidable. In either case, it is important to understand the impact of fluid forces on the surrounding equipment and its performance. ANSYS multiphysics solutions can help you to understand and solve product design challenges related to this fluid–structure interaction (FSI).
