Fluid Structural Interaction (FSI)

MSI’s fluid and structural analysis expertise provides the foundation for our Fluid Structural Interaction (FSI) simulations, giving additional insight into overall system behavior.  By combining computational fluid dynamics with finite element analysis, we can predict aero/hydrodynamic loading, then apply the resulting pressure fields to a solids finite element model to predict the mechanical response.  MSI has successfully used this technique to solve design problems as well as to determine root cause in forensics engineering applications.
