To simulate fluids or gasses, you might use CFD. To simulate solids, you might use FEA or MBD. To simulate the real world, such as a wind turbine moving through the air, a pure CFD or a separate pure FEA analysis is sometimes not enough. Instead, a multiphysics simulation, or co-simulation, is necessary to ensure accuracy.
You are invited to our webinar series where we discuss how to improve the accuracy of CFD simulations by leveraging multiphysics methods available from Hexagon. In one example, the use of multiphysics and CFD yielded accurate aircraft flutter analysis within 2% of physical experimental results.
