Fsi Analyzing with interDymFoam Solver
Dear Foamers
my thesis is "Hydro-Elastic Analyzing Of Wedge Water Entry"

I run openfoam in hydrodynamic state by interDymFoam Solver,without considering FSI...
But it is a long time that I couldn’t make a FSI Solver for my case...

Please guide me

Is there any structural software easily coupled with OpenFoam?
Is there any other easy way?

Best Regards

Greetings Rolix,

Elmer comes to mind as a structural solver, but I can't find any tutorial that explains how to couple Elmer with OpenFOAM.

But let's step back a bit. I asked you (via private messages) to post your question here because I wanted to review the steps you've taken so far. Since you didn't give the description I was expecting, here are a few questions:
  1. Which OpenFOAM version are you using?
  2. Do you have more than one version of OpenFOAM installed?
  3. Have you been able to do the tutorial with success?
  4. You've mentioned to me that you tried to create your own customized solver. What were the exact steps you've taken?
Please provide details when you answer to each one of these questions.

Best regards,
