ICSM++, ICFD++ and MetaFSI provide a general Fluid Structure Interaction capability. MetaFSI utilizes different grids suitable for each computational domain and ensures accurate transfer of loads from the ICFD++ boundaries to the corresponding ICSM++ boundaries. The structural mesh need not be exactly co-located with the fluid mesh. MetaFSI’s mesh morphing capability has been developed and evolved using real-world test cases and provides a robust mesh morphing scheme. Each user interface is specifically designed to allow the user to set up a complex multi-physics problem in a simple way.
