Fluid-Structure Interaction for Better Designs
Products need to be designed and analyzed with better accuracy in the highly competitive engineering world. Accounting for Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI), which is the interaction between a movable or deformable structure with an internal or surrounding fluid flow, has become more important to understand the real environment and boundary conditions surrounding structures. FSI can provide more accurate boundary condition definitions, and help engineers understand the product response better, leading to improved designs. MSC Nastran can be used in multiple FSI simulations ranging from short dynamic to long duration events. MSC Nastran includes built-in state of the art implicit nonlinear and explicit nonlinear solvers and support for OpenFSI, a coupling service to connect to external fluid analysis software. This webinar provides an overview of the FSI analysis capabilities of MSC Nastran along with demonstrations using example test cases.
