FSI-Fluid Structure Interaction
I would like to ask for comments about Fluid Structure Interaction in Flow-3D. I need to model the motion of a device which is being induced by fluid around it. I read about GMO Model of Flow-3D.

Re: FSI-Fluid Structure Interaction
The GMO is a rigid body, no deformations. Does it sounds like it will be suitable? What kind of device are you modeling

Re: FSI-Fluid Structure Interaction
yes I am not modelling deformation. I only need pressure and velocities in the fluid while the body moves in response to the fluid motion.

Re: FSI-Fluid Structure Interaction
Then the GMO model is perfect! you can have also more than one moving body in your domain, and FLOW-3D solves the 6dof free dynamics of all your bodies, coupling it with the fluid.
