No, you cannot perform any type of FSI in 2D. The programs require a face to transmit the forces/displacements from one to the other. However, what is a 2D simulation but a 3D setup with only one cell/element in the normal direction?nTo fake a 2D simulation, you need to extrude your geometry in the normal direction, and then ensure that there is only one cell/element in said direction. I recommend using the Sweep method in Ansys Mesher. From here, it's as simple as the video describes.You might try to code it manually via external data after using post to export load. Better if you extrude one cell thickness and that is it n
