In this 2 day training course you will learn how to solve challenging Fluid-Structure Interactions (FSI) problems using STAR-CCM+ / Abaqus Co-Simulation. Several FSI application examples will be solved and setup from scratch during the training. The focus of the training is the coupling between STAR-CCM+ and Abaqus, and especially on how to monitor and improve the convergence of the coupled solution. Additionally you will learn how to setup and prepare simple Abaqus models in Abaqus/CAE, starting from a geometry export from STAR-CCM+. This will enable you to create simple test cases for your applications all by yourself. With help of such test cases you will find the best coupling settings in an efficient manner. An engineer needs 3 things to be able to successfully solve FSI problems: 1) A software which efficiently solves all relevant physics 2) A software which is easy to use 3) Expertise and experience in solving FSI problems
This training addresses the third requirement: focus on the governing physics. While experience may be acquired through trial and error, learning from an expert at Siemens will help to ensure you develop the knowledge and skills needed to be successful with your FSI simulations.
"I went in to the course thinking I knew a good amount about the FSI capabilities of STAR-CCM+. I walked away realizing how little I knew, and how much better I will be at developing my own models in the future." -Justin Pesich, Honda R&D Americas
