Fluid-Structure Interaction in Machining Operations

Reference number
Coordinator Högskolan Väst - Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap
Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration January 2010 - December 2010
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The project aims to explore opportunities for syncriniserad coupled simulation of both fluid and structural simulation of a turning operation with high-pressure cooling. Is it possible to capture the physics involved in this type of lathe operation by simultaneously connecting projections from both FEM and CFD software in a simplified 2-dimensional model

Expected results and effects

Identify limitations of both soft and hardware specifications. How do one set up the communication between simulation softwares. How is the boundary condictions described so it can used of both soft ware at the same time. Memory management in the calculation, is both one and two-way communication possible to perform simultaneously. Finally, it is possible to capture the physics of this cutting process by using coupled simulations

Planned approach and implementation

Investigate what software is possible to get to komunicate with each other and can simulate their part of the problem. Start with very simple case, then keep increasing the models complexity.
