I want to do a transient FSI simulation to investigate the effect of an elastic tube conveying fluid on an oscillating bubble inside the tube.January 28, 2022 at 3:22 pmStephen OrlandoAnsys Employee
Do you get the same error with this tutorial? https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v221/en/sysc_tut/sysc_tut_reedvalve_fluent.html. Are you running on a local machine or trying to run on a remote machine?
January 29, 2022 at 5:52 amZ_HeidarySubscriberHi Steve,
Thanks for your reply.
No, I did not get this error with the mentioned tutorial. I'm using a remote machine to run this simulation since my local machine does not have enough RAM.

February 1, 2022 at 10:49 amZ_HeidarySubscriberI use "Remote Desktop Connection" to connect with the remote machine. I have access to everything on this machine. It doesn't seem this error is because of the remote machine. I think it relates to my simulation setup since it works for some other simulations for FSI problems!

When running System Coupling and it stops running, the first thing to do is examine the output files for each solver to look for clues to what happened. For Fluent, look at the transcript .trn file. For Mechanical, look at the .out file. For CFX, look at the .out file. Also, look at the System Coupling log file, .scl. You can also try re-running the case and stopping it just before the timestep when it crashes, then examine the mesh in Fluent or CFD-Post to get more clues.
FSI simulations with very soft materials (like an elastic tube) 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.

The following tutorial, specifically this section: https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v221/en/sysc_tut/sysc_tut_oscplate_export_cfx_setup_export.html, shows how to set up a System Coupling case in Workbench and then export it to the new System Coupling GUI outside of Workbench. The new System Coupling GUI gives you access to more advanced features like Quasi-Newton Stabilization. This tutorial is for CFX and Mechanical, but the same export process, and System Coupling GUI setup process is valid for Fluent and Mechanical cases. https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v221/en/sysc_tut/sysc_tut_oscplate_export_cfx.html
