MpCCI CouplingEnvironment

MpCCI CouplingEnvironment

has been developed in order to provide an application independent interface for the direct coupling of different simulation codes. MpCCI CouplingEnvironment has been accepted as a ‘de facto’ neutral standard for simulation code coupling and provides a multi-physics framework.

 

Software MpCCI CouplingEnvironment

MpCCI CouplingEnvironment has already successfully been used in various application domains:

  • Fluid-Structure-Interaction for Aero-Elasticity and flexible Components in Machinery Design
  • Thermal Stress and Vibrations in Turbomachinery Applications
  • Combined System and 3D Continuum Models for Vehicle and Machine Dynamics
  • Coupled Fluid and Radiation for Automotive Thermal Management
  • Thermal and Magneto-Hydrodynamic Effects in Electrical Components
  • Fluid-Structure-Interactions in Bio-Medical Applications
