I recommend going over this tutorial in the Ansys documentation that shows a 2-way FSI simulation with Fluent and Mechanical. Coupling Tutorials \\ Tutorials with Workbench-Setup Workflows \\ Tutorials with Workbench Setup and Execution \\ Oscillating Plate FSI with Fluent and MechanicalnnYou can also look at the following for a similar tutorial but run with the System Coupling GUI outside of Workbench. The new System Coupling GUI (run outside of Workbench) is available by searching for System Coupling 2019R3 (or newer) in the Windows Start menu. simulations with very soft materials or membranes are prone to numerical instabilities. In 2020R1 we have introduced a stabilization method in System Coupling called the Quasi-Newton Stabilization Algorithm. Note that this has to be used with the new System Coupling GUI or Command Line Interface that is run outside of Workbench. More information here: Coupling User's Guide \\ System Coupling Data Transfers \\ Supplemental Processing Algorithms \\ Quasi-Newton Stabilization AlgorithmnnIt is very important to build up the FSI simulation in stages as opposed to setting up the 2-way FSI right at the start. This document Best Practices for Coupled Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) describes this process and is available here: Coupling User's Guide \\ Best Practices for System Coupling \\ Best Practices for Coupled Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI)n
