Default Fluid-structure coupling problem
Posts: n/a
Dear Sir or Madam, I am researching on the squeeze flow computation in mechanical heart valve. Someone has used Fidap and Cfd-ace to deal this fluid-structure interaction problem. I want to know the advantages and disadvantages for these two codes in this problem. And someone who has other good suggestions, would you kindly reply me? Thanks.

One option is to do a coupled field analysis using independent codes. One for the CFD and one that is able to read the fluids results and can conduct a structural analysis. These techniques tend to be weakly coupled and require a significant amount of manual work. ANSYS/Multiphysics has made great improvements to their FSI capabiilities and offered a strongly coupled approach where the gov eqns are solved simultaneously. Hope this helps.
