SIMULIA Integration Partner
CD-adapco's industry leading simulation tool, STAR-CCM+, has a direct connection to Abaqus, delivering fully coupled, implicit two-way, fluid-structure interaction (FSI). Using direct co-simulation coupling provides efficiency and reduced overhead usually associated with data transfer through file exchanges or use of external middleware software. This co-simulation capability makes fluid-structure-thermal calculations a regular part of the engineering design process.
The close technological CD-adapco and SIMULIA partnership also means that setting up and running the problem may all be done within the easy-to-use STAR-CCM+ environment, with no need for additional scripts and input files or mapping data. The powerful physics of both codes may be leveraged in coupled FSI with STAR-CCM+’s full range of available models, providing the ability to study coupled, single and multiphase flows, chemical reaction and combustion as well as flow regimes from low speed to hypersonic. The options available in Abaqus are similarly broad, with coupled simulation supported for static stress/displacement, dynamics (implicit and explicit), heat transfer, temperature-displacement, thermal-electrical and piezoelectric analysis.
