Hello everyone,

I would like to perform a fluid-solid interface on a cantilever beam with piezo excitation. I have modeled a t-shaped structure that is actuated by bimorph piezo patches at the fixed end. This end acts as a fixed end and the structure will be immersed in water completely and would like to see the mode shapes of this structure. I have already performed modal analysis on this structure and now want to simulate it in a water ambiance. I also want to know if using modal acoustics serves the purpose as I am not aware of ANSYS fluent at all. Also, does this have any added mass effect if the water has some flow induced in it? If so how can this effect be simulated in ANSYS? Please let me know.

Thanks in advance
