Cosimulation in HM-CFD

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I am trying to do a cosimulation MotionSolve-AcuSolve similar to the one in ACU-T:520. 

Is it possible to prepare the model in HM-CFD instead of AcuConsole? I couldn't find any provisions to define the External Code Parameters and the related information like External Code Surface and the rest. Is there a way around it?

 

Best regards,


Cjc

We are porting all features from AcuConsole to HyperMesh. Right now AcuConsole will be the only option for co-simulation with MotionSolve.

I see, thank you.

In this case, since the CFD part of the cosimulation involves mixing two fluids between themselves and with air and since the Level Set method allows for 2 fields only, can the Algebraic Eulerian Model be defined in AcuConsole?

If I read this correctly, you have three fluids you wish to mix, one of which is air.  Is that correct?  You'll likely be better off going through your local Altair / HyperWorks support channel so they can bring in the appropriate resources to determine if AcuSolve is appropriate for your desired simulation.

Thanks for your answer.

 

That is correct. It is something like in the attached animation. The limitation with the Level Set was that the two cylinders had to have the same fluid and the other fluid was air which was not the case in reality. The two cylinders have two different fluids (+ outside air as the 3rd) and I was looking for a way to model that with the Eulerian Method; so I can visualise how well the fluid in the exterior cylinder encapsulates the fluid in the interior cylinder when they meet in the air.
