Fluid-Structure Interaction Made Easy with FEATool Multiphysics 1.11

FEATool Multiphysics 1.11 is now available and extends the multi-simulation solver concept even further by introducing a fluid-structure interaction (FSI) solver (in addition to the existing built-in multiphysics, OpenFOAM, and FEniCS solver integrations).

In addition, the 3D geometry engine has been updated with support for the OpenCASCADE and BRL-CAD open source CSG geometry engines, as well as new built-in geometry primitives for more complex geometries.

FEATool Multiphysics version 1.11 also features:

  • new support for more efficient sparse linear solvers, such as MUMPS, and GMRES/BiCGStab with ILU(k) preconditioning.
  • Dedicated and improved treatment of internal/interior boundaries
  • Support for Gmsh v4.x GEO file format geometry import and export
  • New examples and tutorials for thermo-mechanical coupling, fluid-structure interaction, and non-Newtonian flow
  • P1/P2 bubble, Nedelec curl, and Raviart-Thomas vector finite element shape functions
  • Miscellaneous GUI and usability improvements

Please see for more information and toolbox download.
