Modeling Fluid-Structure Interaction with COMSOL Multiphysics®
In this archived webinar, learn how to model fluid-structure interaction (FSI) in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software. We demonstrate simulating this phenomenon via one-way coupling as well as two-way coupling at steady state and with full dynamic effects. In addition, we discuss cases involving laminar, turbulent, and two-phase flows.
