preCICE Workshop 2023 - Couple your CalculiX simulations

Dear CalculiX Community,

You may have heard of preCICE, which is an open-source coupling library for partitioned multi-physics simulations, including, but not restricted to fluid-structure interaction and conjugate heat transfer simulations.
Partitioned means that preCICE couples existing programs/solvers capable of simulating a subpart of the complete physics involved in a simulation. This allows for the high flexibility that is needed to keep a decent time-to-solution for complex multi-physics scenarios.
The software offers convenient methods for transient equation coupling, communication, and data mapping.

CalculiX has always been a strong pillar of our community and the CalculiX preCICE adapter is directly maintained by us. It has proven to be a good tool for both the initial contact with partitioned cases and for running real-world simulations. Many of our FSI and CHT tutorial cases couple it with OpenFOAM. Have a look also at some user stories, which often use CalculiX in their coupled simulations.

Does all this sound exciting? Join the 4th preCICE Workshop: February 13-16, 2023 in Munich (yes, finally on-site again, this time at LRZ).

Expect user and developer talks, hands-on training sessions, discussions with the developers on your applications and use cases, feedback rounds, and plenty of opportunities to network with the rest of our vibrant community.

Short talk abstract submission in two batches: early till December 16 (early feedback), late till January 9

Registration: early-bird till January 9, late till January 30

Find more information on the workshop page or talk to us on the preCICE forum on Discourse.

Kind regards,
The preCICE Team

P.S.: Help us make this workshop more interesting to you by attracting more experts from your field. Please spread the word and help us reach out to more people like you on LinkedIn.

Any plans to post the talks/presentations after the event?

We want to record where it makes sense (e.g., talks), and we will be adding the recordings on in fall.

What we do not plan to record is the training course, the community discussions, and of course the hands-on user support sessions and the social parts.
