Multiphysics Working Group
Industrial use of multiphysics simulations is a diverse and challenging topic. The main driving force is the need for more realistic numerical simulations of coupled problems, combined with the continuing improvements in hardware and software. The NAFEMS multiphysics working group (MPWG) has been set up to promote and support the use of multiphysics simulations in industry.
The challenge with multiphysics simulations is the sheer amount of knowledge that the simulation engineer needs to possess. To address this, the MPWG works with:
- Publications(books and papers)
- Conferences and workshops
Benchmarks and Case Studies
Due to the lack of published material, the MPWG strives to create a collection of case studies and benchmarks for coupled simulations.
Given the complexity of multiphysics applications, a lot of research still needs to be done. The MPWG promotes collaborations between universities, software vendors, and industry. The group encourages the establishment of industrial consortia for addressing difficult simulation challenges.
In addition to the core members of the working group, it is planned to set up a wider emailing list for interested NAFEMS members. If you have already expressed an interest in the Multi-Physics Working Group you need do nothing further. Other interested parties should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
