SIMULIA Integration Partner
Abaqus v6.14 and above is currently available with a Co-Simulation API and associated libraries that permit coupling with third party software. CRAFT Tech has developed the needed interfacing with the CSE API with its unstructured Navier-Stokes code, CRUNCH CFD, and its high fidelity structured grid Navier-Stokes solver, CRAFT CFD. CRAFT Tech would license this interface to users of Abaqus. Users of CRAFT Tech’s flow solvers increasingly are interested in multidisciplinary analyses. The integrated FSI simulation suite allows licensed users of CRUNCH CFD, CRAFT CFD, and Abaqus to address problems involving coupled force and boundary motion, heat transfer and thermal strains, plastic deformation and failure, vibration, cyclic fatigue, etc. A preprocessor for grid conversion and Abaqus input setup has also been developed and would be available to licensed users of CRUNCH CFD and CRAFT CFD who are interested in performing coupled analyses with Abaqus.
