Start/stop FSI without MpCCI

The FlowVision Multi-Physics Manager (MPM) controls both FlowVision and SIMULIA Abaqus during the cosimulation process. It manages data transfer, solver start and restart and provides feedback on the simulation progress.

FlowVision combined with SIMULIA Abaqus offers unique co-simulation capabilities for solving strongly coupled fluid-structure interaction problems. The FlowVision grid generation is based on SGGR (Sub-Grid Geometry Resolution) technology which allows for matched and accurate data exchange between CFD and FEA meshes. The “wetted interface” is automatically established between fluid and solid domains. It can involve moving objects and moving boundaries with arbitrary complexity.

FlowVision FSI key features

  • MPM manager for simple setup, start and restart of simulation and real-time results monitoring
  • Automatic coupling of not matched CFD & FEA meshes and automatic re-meshing (not limited to mesh deformation or mesh overset methods)
  • Support of highly deforming structures, moving bodies, moving boundaries and free surface tracking
  • Individual time step control for FEM and CFD solver
  • Time step control of data exchange FSI
  • Reduced simulation time

Applications where FlowVision - Abaqus Coupling Outstands
