Organizer: CD adapco Group
Special Fields: Fluid-Structure Interaction
Softwares: STAR-CD
Type of Event: Course, National

es-fsi (Expert System - Fluid-Structure Interaction) is 
the latest release of an analysis tool developed and used 
by adapco. It allows for the analysis of fluid-structure
interaction using STAR-CD, so that effects such as
flow-induced flutter, vibration and bending can be 
dynamically included as part of the calculation. This 
training course is intended for users wishing to include 
such effects as part of their CFD analyses.

The course emphasis is on teaching students applicable 
techniques for using es-fsi using realistic industrial 
examples. Example problems to be solved by the course 
attendees are:

o Fuel Tank Sloshing FSI Analysis

o Pressure-Actuated Valve FSI Analysis

o Vibrating Fan Blade FSI Analysis

As part of the course fee, users will receive a "limited 
capacity" version of es-fsi, which will allow them to solve 
problems having up to 200,000 fluid cells. Additional 
information on es-fsi can be found at:

Course Prerequisites:

o A working knowledge of STAR-CD

o Familiarity with FEM techniques is helpful

No prior knowledge of es-fsi is required.

If you are interested in attending or obtaining more 
information then please contact Scott Wilensky on
