Hi, we want to simulate turbu
we want to simulate turbulence of wind near a cantilever beam and the motion of the cantilever beam caused by windload. Similar to the physical modelling by Hrvoje Jasak: "Fluid-structure interaction in a single software implementation" on his page (research), but 3D. Does anyone know which solver, which meshgeneration could be used for such a problem and how elasticity of the cantilever beam was used in the example.
Maybe the example is accessible somewhere.

Thanks Hannes
