Abstract

TRW's multidisciplinary engineering by using the coupling interface MpCCI: coupling between CFX-5 and MSC.Marc Ch. ~ u n ~ ' & M. ~ u n t z ~ I TRWAirbag Systems GmbH, Aschau am Inn, Germany 2 AEA Technology GmbH, OtterJing, Germany Abstract Numerical simulation of physical phenomena is now a commonly used tool in industry and research during development of new products and services. Most of the phenomena are related to a single discipline, however, our world is multidisciplinary. The simulation of these complex phenomena requires software capable of dealing with it. One solution is the connection of two or more software codes by a coupling library. As a result the development of new codes for multidisciplinary problems can be avoided and the reuse of established and validated software is possible. This paper describes the general concept of the coupling between CFX-5 and MSC.Marc via MpCCI. Also, the application interface concept is explained and the two communication concepts provided by Mp
