A multiphysics simulation capability suitable for fluid-structure interaction is presented that uses the Abaqus nonlinear structural dynamics solver and the Loci/CHEM computational fluid dynamics solver. The coupling is achieved using SIMULIA's Co-Simulation Engine technology. The Co-Simulation Engine is a software component that allows the coupling of multiple simulation domains by coupling solvers in a synchronized manner.
