CRA103 - Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) with SC/Tetra

Horizontal spacer

The objective of this course is to teach attendees how to approach different FSI problems using SC/Tetra and Abaqus. General information about FSI simulations will be discussed initially followed by technical details of FSI simulations. The course also includes step by step instructions on how to setup a two-way FSI problem. Then there will be discussion about important steps to verify the accuracy of the simulation. The course will be concluded by giving a hands-on experience workshop where attendees are given brief instructions and are encouraged to complete a setup for a two-way FSI problem. The last session of the training includes additional techniques to solve one-way coupling problems using SC/Tetra and/or 3rd party FEA software.
