Information day: Mulitphysics

The modern term “Multiphysics” can be understood as a synonym for the solution of generally coupled problems. Following this, multiphysical applications are often classified according to the nature of their coupling in terms of a weak or strong interaction of the involved processes, methods, materials, physical fields or scales as well as combinations thereof.

Moreover, the interacting quantities may result in either volume- or surface-coupled problems. Thus, the success of multiphysical simulations strongly depends on the coupling abilities of the underlying simulation platform. In the case of LS-DYNA, this is achieved in a unified simulation environment.

The goal of this information day is to enlarge upon the basic difficulties with the set-up of multiphysical simulations and to provide suitable solutions by embracing the available discretization schemes in space and time in LS-DYNA. In particular, a great variety of finite elements in a Lagrangean, Eulerian or Arbitrary-Lagrange-Eulerian formulation can be coupled with boundary elements, isogeometric elements or even meshfree methods like SPH, EFG or DEM. Moreover, implicit as well as explicit time integration schemes are provided and can be combined depending on the strength of the coupling. On the basis of practical examples, an overview on the current coupling abilities in LS-DYNA is given. Herein, the attention is mainly on the mutual interaction of solids and fluids with thermal and electromagnetical fields.

Important note: Please do not arrive at our info days without registration. We will send a confirmation by e-mail approximately one week before the event whether the info day will actually take place as planned.
