Best Practice for Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) and System Coupling Simulations

As engineers increasingly rely on simulation during the product design cycle, the need to simulate designs using multiple physics is growing rapidly so that real world behavior can be simulated. System Coupling in ANSYS Workbench provides tight integration of ANSYS Fluent and ANSYS Mechanical to allow the most complex Fluid-Structure Interaction phenomena to be simulated in a single environment.

During the presentation, the panelists will share advice and best practices for FSI simulations coupling ANSYS Fluent to ANSYS Mechanical using real world example cases. The presentation will discuss various strategies to improve the workflow efficiency for pre-processing and solving FSI cases. These will include recommended workflows, tips on diagnosing mapping problems, best practices for model setup and tactics to debug convergence issues.
