Fluid – Structure Interaction
Many challenges faced in product development involve the way the structural performance influences fluid behaviour and vice-versa. In such circumstances its necessary to compute the fluid flow simultaneously with structural deformation in order to accurately predict realistic loadings on the mechanical part.
Design of Experiments
The primary objective of industrial DOE within product development is to extract as much information as possible within a reasonable number of simulation experiments. One of the fundamental ideas behind DOE methodologies is the assumption that lower order effects are more likely to be important, which is often called the Pareto effect.
This can be crash-worthiness, metal forming or ultimate capacity analyses. We have experience with a wide variety of FEA based tools performing highly complex non-linear applications..
Many flow simulation applications involve two or more immiscible fluids (known as multi-phase flows in CFD) such as tank sloshing or mould filling and often solid particulate matter can also influence the flow solution if in large concentrations.
