One Method of Fluid-Solid Coupled Interaction Simulation


Article Preview

In this article we presented a method of Fluid-Solid coupled simulation via FLUNET and ABAQUS in problems such as Aero/Hydro-Elasticity problems. UDF (user define function) script file in the Fluent software was utilized as the ‘Connecting File’ between FLUENT and ABAQUS for Aero-Elastic computations. Firstly, the fluid field was computed by Navier-Stokes Equation and the structure movement was directly integrated by the dynamics Equation, respectively. Then, the ‘Connecting File’ exchanged the computed data through the fluid and structure’s interface. The next analysis step continued. Analysis of the computed results showed that this coupling method designed for aero-elastic system was feasible and can be also used for other Fluid-Structure Coupling problems.
