Fluid-structure interaction

We have studied fluid-structure interaction (FSI) using a coupled analysis that combines OpenFOAM–CalculiX, and SU2–CalculiX, using the coupling library preCICE.

FSI simulation for inflatable reentry vehicle
A coupled analysis model is developed by comparing the FSI simulation and wind tunnel experiments.

FSI simulation for a thin wing at transonic or supersonic speeds
Limit cycle oscillation of a flat wing is also investigated using the FSI model composing SU2 and CalculiX with preCICE libiray. Please check the preCICE website too: here.
