Coupling MPCCI with CFX
Hi dear members

I have a question! Can i couple Abaqus with CFX by MPCCi ?

Best regards

CFX can deal with FSI
you can use Fluent, MPCCI, ABAQUS

You can do it through MPCCI. You will almost certainly have to contact ABAQUS and ANSYS support to get it working.

My advice is don't bother trying MPCCI. If you want to do FSI with CFX then use ANSYS Mechanical. If you must use Abaqus then look at a CFD code that support a connection to Abaqus, but from what I've seen these aren't as good as FSI with CFX - ANSYS for various reasons. MPCCI is difficult to set up, has limited features (e.g. explicit coupling only) and you won't get much help from ANSYS support since it's not their product.

I agree with stumpy - if you can move to CFX/ANSYS it will be much better.
