preCICE

A Coupling Library for Partitioned Multi-Physics Simulations on Massively Parallel Systems

preCICE 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. Read more on the preCICE website.

preCICE consists of several components, most of which are released as part of the preCICE Distribution:

When using or referring to preCICE in academic publications, please follow the citation guidelines. More specifically, cite the preCICE v2 reference paper and any reference papers of adapters you may be using. For reproduibility, you may also want to use components from a preCICE distribution version and cite the respective data repository entry.
