Faculty Aerospace Engineering Department Aerodynamics, Wind Energy & Propulsion Date 2015-04-01 Abstract Multi-physics simulations, such as fluid-structure-acoustics interaction (FSA), require a high performance computing environment in order to perform the simulation in a reasonable amount of computation time. Currently used coupling methods use a staggered execution of the fluid and solid solver [6], which leads to inherent load imbalances. In [12] a new coupling scheme based on a quasi-Newton method is proposed for fluidstructure interaction which coupled the fluid and solid solver in parallel. The quasi-Newton method requires approximately the same number of coupling iterations per time step compared to a staggered coupling approach, resulting in a better load balance when running in a parallel environment. This contribution investigates the scalability limit and load-balancing for a strongly coupled fluid-structure interaction problem, and also for a fluid-structure-acoustics interaction problem. The acoustic far field of the fluid-structure-acoustics interaction problem is loosely coupled with the flow field.
