Hi All,
I was doing a 3d FSI on a cantilever column in uniform flow. I used the following configuration files: Sorry about putting them all here in the end of this thread. The issue is that when I check the solution, it seems that the cantilever beam did not bend as expected. The coupling seems to work because I can still see small deformation on the surface of the column at high pressure but there was no bending. I thought the reason is that the fluid mesh did not deform as expected. I wonder why this could happen. There must be something wrong with my mesh deformation in my configuration file. Could someone please help me to look in the configuration file>? Thank you !!!!! My output for the last iteration goes like this: ++  Zone 0 (Incomp.

At first glance all looks ok.
Can you post some pictures? Keep in mind that the structural result is always undeformed, you need to apply the deformation (displacements) in postprocessing if you want. In Paraview this is done with the "warp" function. Also, what version of SU2 are you using?

Hi PCG, Thank you for your respond. The flow field and the corresponding pressure distribution on the surface, along with y+, are all what I expected. However, the force seems not to be transmitted into the solid calculation as only a few mesh nodes were shifted to cause stress on the cantilever. In addition, there was no bending observed. Fluid domain, notice that no mesh movement> 13265327.png surface pressure: 922624236.jpg Vonmises stress on column 1479390492.jpg To verify the problem is not due to structural mesh. I did a separate simulation using same mesh file but in steady loading of uniform 100 Pa in +x direction from 1 side of the column for the solid only. The deformation met my expectation. 999.jpg I do think there is something wrong within my coupling or mesh deformation for fluid domain. I don't know what that is however. I was using Release 7.0.4. I was using a standard OH grid for this fluid domain.

I don't see anything major in your config.
There are some options that are not necessary or slightly misplaced but I don't think they would cause issues. Anyway, I modified one of the 2D examples to use the incompressible NS solver (attached), it runs and deforms try to adapt the configs to your grid and see if it works.

Thank you for your reply. I had done a 2D case before using modified tutorial file and it works great. However, in my 3d case, it seems that the coupling went wrong. As you pointed out, my config file looks okay. So I wonder if the convergence is the reason that the pressure coupling seems to failed. I wonder what should be the convergence criteria for the mesh deformation, solid as well as fluid. I was aiming at E(6) for fluid and solid, but not sure what should be the minimum residual error for mesh deformation solver. In addition, by looking at the output from my last iteration: ++  Zone 0 (Incomp. Fluid)  ++  Inner_Iter Time(sec) rms[P] CL CD Avg CFL ++  0 1.4844e+02 8.057513 0.000001 0.000069 2.0000e+04  10 9.3722e+01 8.105184 0.000004 0.000066 2.0000e+04 ++  Zone 1 (Structure)  ++  Inner_Iter Load[%] rms[U] rms[R] rms[E] VonMises ++  0 100.00% 8.207325 3.791529 15.592381 1.4176e+01  99 100.00% 8.655378 3.792181 16.394546 1.4176e+01 ++  Multizone Summary  ++  Outer_Iter avg[bgs][0] avg[bgs][1]MinVolume[0]DeformIter[0 ++  59 0.102389 10.135375 3.7766e14 286 # CG residual history # Residual tolerance target = 1e10 # Initial residual norm = 1.1249e06 0 0.228422 100 5.94382e08 270 1.09e10 # CG final (true) residual: # Iteration = 270: res/res0 = 9.67159e11.

To me it is. Is the "failed coupling" actually due to poor convergence? Thank you again.

The example I provided follows what I consider to be best practices for FSI, 2D or 3D.
There is no mesh deformation on the solid side. You specified a Poison ratio of 0.49 for the structure, this makes the equations very illconditioned, especially in 3D. You should never need more than 10 inner iterations on the structure, if with 100 iterations the residuals do not drop it means the linear solver is not able to solve the systems.
