Fluid & Structure Interaction...
I want to use Fluent for Fluid & Structure Interaction.A shockwave due to blasting gets obstructed by a metal cantilever bar.That Cantilever bar will deflect due to the impact of that shockwave. In this variation in temperature,Strain hardening of Metal of Cantilever, Fracture on metal surface, Changes in properties of Metal from Elastic to Plastic are to be considered. Is it possible to do this using Fluent?

Please help.
