What is multi-physics simulation?
Most CAE analysis software tools based upon single discipline: - CFD (fluid flow, heat transfer, combustion) - CSM (structures, dynamics, contact, heat transfer) - CEM (electro-magnetics) - Acoustics
What of their interactions?
- mostly we cheat or ignore them

The role of standards in multi-physics and analysis
David Leal, CAESAR Systems Limited, London, UK
The paper describes the current status of STEP (ISO 10303). The developments of STEP to address multi-physics and analysis, especially the Engineering Analysis Core Model, are highlighted.
Multiphysics needs in the naval marine industry
John D McVee & Dr A P Steer, QinetiQ Rosyth, Centre for Marine Technology, Dunfermline, United Kingdom
An overview is given of possible multiphysics applications with reference to current QinetiQ research including that aimed at validated design and analysis capability for Trimaran warships. Examples are given of current capability with regard to the fluid structure interaction arising from underwater explosions and the hydroelasticity of ships in seaways.

Computational Modelling of Manufacturing Processes
Avril Slone*, Chris Bailey, Nick Croft, Mark Cross, Kevin McManus, Koulis Pericleous and Alison Williams, *University of Greenwich, London, UK
Key manufacturing processes Forming processes - forging, stamping, extrusion : all in the solid(ish) state but involve / significant contact analysis and very large / deformation Solidification/melting phase change based processes : shape casting, plastics moulding, composite manufacture, welding
Key interactions : fluid flow - NS , transient, compressible, turbulent, multi-phase solid mechanics - non-linear,elasto-visco-plastic,dynamic,contact heat transfer - phase change, combustion, reactions electro-magnetics - MHD, AC/DC
