The OOFELIE::Multiphysics Solver can be used in combination with Cadence‘s products.


Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) refers to the integration of our OOFELIE::Multiphysics Solver‘s thermomechanical capabilities with Cadence’s Finite Volume Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) capabilities.

This page delves into the complexities of simulating the complex interplay between fluid and structure, taking into account both thermodynamics and mechanics.

The mutual influence of a deformable structure and an adjacent fluid flow is referred to as fluid-structure interaction. This phenomenon is critical in several technical fields, including aerospace, defense, and automotive.

The problem is in building algorithms that smoothly integrate the fluid and structure solvers to effectively capture the dynamic interaction while retaining simulation stability, which is critical when dealing with large deformations and fluid flow variations.
