FD software models fluid structure interaction

Version 8.5 of FIDAP – Fluent’s CFD flow modelling software – brings together comprehensive flow modelling capabilities with the ability to model fluid structure interaction.

This should be of interest in polymer processing, where stress and deflection extrusion dies can be captured using fluid structure interaction, leading to better die design.

Thermal stresses in equipment and devices due to temperature changes and material properties can also be predicted using FIDAP 8.5.
