COMSOL-hosted webinar on fluid-structure interaction

April 24, 2014
Needham, Massaschusetts

Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) is the interaction between a moving or deformable structure and an internal or surrounding fluid flow.  Some examples include building sway, wing flutter, valve chatter, and cardiovascular blood flow.  This COMSOL-hosted webinar showed how to simulate FSI, explored characteristic examples, and demonstrated how to solve such a problem in COMSOL Multiphysics.  The demonstration featured a pull-in simulation of a MEMS switch accounting for contact and squeeze film damping where solid deformation and fluid flow are strongly coupled.  The webinar concluded with a Q&A session.
