Gerasimos Chourdakis: A general preCICE-adapter for OpenFOAM
The coupling library preCICE allows to combine multiple simulations, enabling them to efficiently work together on their shared interfaces. In this way we can solve multi-physics problems, such as conjugate heat transfer or mechanical fluid-structure interaction, using specialized tools for each domain. In order to use a solver with preCICE we need an adapter, which provides access to the solver’s interface data and control elements. A variety of OpenFOAM solvers has been adapted for preCICE, using adapters specially tailored to each solver. This midterm master’s thesis talk will present the current development state of a general preCICE-adapter for OpenFOAM, an adapter that allows the coupling of any OpenFOAM solver.
