As the world transitions to clean technologies, simulations have become a vital tool for designing ever more efficient and cost-effective engineering solutions. Many engineering problems involve coupled physics, with fluid-structure interaction (FSI) being one of the most common multi-physics phenomena. Accurately solving FSI problems is essential to advance our understanding and develop improved technologies for a wide variety of applications, including pumps and compressors, marine engineering, and biomedical research. The complexity of the geometry and its motion, along with the associated transient flow features, often create a substantial roadblock for engineers wishing to perform FSI simulations. Generating an initial computational mesh and maintaining mesh quality for arbitrary structural motion can be prohibitively challenging and time-consuming. In this webinar, we will discuss how CONVERGE CFD software’s autonomous meshing and coupled fluid and structural solvers enable efficient set up and simulation of FSI problems with complex moving geometries. We will showcase a variety of examples to demonstrate the application of CONVERGE to pumps, compressors, and valves, as well as marine, wind energy, and biomedical applications.
