1 Description

Quoting from here:

This toolkit supersedes the icoFsiElasticNonLinULSolidFoam FSI solver within the solidMechanics toolbox.

This framework was presented at the OpenFOAM Workshop 2014 in Zagreb: abstract and slides.

The major improvement with regard to FSI coupling is the implementation of the IQN-ILS algorithm.

Also, the plugin approach used for the solid and fluid solvers should allow easier extension to other fluid/solid models e.g. multi-phase, compressible, plasticity, etc.

2 Installation
