    Multiphysics simulations are widely investigated, but not that commonly applied in industrial cases. Due to their complexity, one may need to couple different numerical methods to achieve satisfying results.

    Using multiphysics simulations allows the interaction between different physical phenomena to be captured. This proved a more complete understanding of system behaviour when compared to, for example, separate structural and fluid simulations do in isolation.


    This is achieved by solving multiple sets of equations, which describe different physical phenomena within one simulation.

    Typical multiphysics simulations include:

    • Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI)
    • Thermal-Structural analysis
    • Structural-Acoustic analysis
    • Structural-Pore pressure analysis
    • Structural-Electromagnetics analysis

    The paid for TECHNIA Simulation Learning Program webinar on 27th January will teach an attendee how to set up a Fluid-Structure Interaction that reuses the best features of Finite Element and Lattice-Boltzmann Methods. A simulation of a human artery will be used to show how to run a co-simulation of Abaqus and XFlow. Discover more below...
