chrono::fsi::ChSystemFsi Class Reference

Description

Physical system for fluid-solid interaction problem.

This class is used to represent a fluid-solid interaction problem consist of fluid dynamics and multibody system. Each of the two underlying physics are independent objects owned and instantiated by this class. Additionally, the fsi system owns other objects to handle the interface between the two systems, boundary condition enforcing markers, and data.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

chrono::fsi::ChSystemFsi::ChSystemFsi ( ChSystem other_physicalSystem,
bool  other_haveFluid 
)

Constructor for FSI system.

This class constructor instantiates all the member objects. Wherever relevant, the instantiation is handled by sending a pointer to other objects or data. Therefore, the sub-classes have pointers to the same data.

Member Function Documentation

void chrono::fsi::ChSystemFsi::DoStepDynamics_ChronoRK2 ( )
virtual

Function to integrate the multibody system dynamics based on Runge-Kutta 2nd-order integration scheme.

void chrono::fsi::ChSystemFsi::DoStepDynamics_FSI ( )
virtual

Function to integrate the fsi system in time.

It uses a Runge-Kutta 2nd order algorithm to update both the fluid and multibody system dynamics. The midpoint data of MBS is needed for fluid dynamics update.

void chrono::fsi::ChSystemFsi::Finalize ( )
virtual

Finalize the construction of the fsi system.

This function must be called when the fsi system is constructed, before the simulation starts. This function calls FinalizeData function and also finalizes the fluid and bce objects if the system have fluid.

void chrono::fsi::ChSystemFsi::FinalizeData ( )
virtual

Fill out the dependent data based on the independent one.

For instance, it copies the position of the rigid bodies from the multibody dynamics system to arrays in fsi system since they are needed for internal use.

std::vector<std::shared_ptr<ChBody> >* chrono::fsi::ChSystemFsi::GetFsiBodiesPtr ( )

Get a pointer to the fsi bodies.

fsi bodies are the ones seen by the fluid dynamics system. These ChBodies are stored in a std::vector using their shared pointers.
