OPENIFEM PROJECT

OpenIFEM project is an open-source software that our lab has developed based on a modified formulation of the immersed finite element method (IFEM) to simulate fluid-structure interactions and multiphysics coupling. It is modularly built and is highly adaptable. We welcome you to use and contribute to our project.

multiphysics/multiscale coupling and applications

  • fluid-structure interactions: biomechanics, topology optimization, shock-induced structural damage, additive manufacturing

  • near field - far field solution (FEM/VPM) coupling: flow and vortical analysis of rotorcraft on a shipdeck

  • fluid-structure-acoustics interactions: voice disorders; noise reduction of MAVs

  • multiphase (gas-liquid) interactions: thermal hydraulics

  • gas-liquid-deformable solid interactions: melting/solidification
