Structures that contain fluid must be analysed under a variety of load types to determine design effectiveness. In the design of containers and consumer products, typical loading scenarios considered include drop testing, temperature change, pressurisation, and stacking. For dynamics loading situations, Abaqus/Explicit includes a number of advanced features that allow certain types of fluid-structure interaction, including sloshing and inertial loading effects, to be modelled accurately. Abaqus has been used extensively in the consumer products and packaging industries for these types of analyses. The purpose of this webinar is to give general idea about the different tools available for modelling fluid structure interaction.

About the Presenter: David Sziroczak, Senior Engineer at Intrinsys

David is extensively utilised to develop new processes for the wider application of FEA and is most happy when looking into challenging applications where he can push the software to its limits. Amongst a varied project workload, including presenting at various industry conference events on subjects like the "Dynamic Stress Analysis of a Four Bar Linkage using Multi-Body Dynamics", David has worked on a project to help a customer develop a new technique to model heat transfer within rare earth magnets. David is currently working towards his PhD at Cranfield University, where Intrinsys have strong academic links, sponsor students and provide research projects.
