The adapter was initially developed for conjugate heat transfer (CHT) simulations via preCICE by Lucia Cheung in the scope of her master’s thesis  in cooperation with SimScale. For running the adapter for CHT simulations refer to this thesis. The adapter was extended to fluid-structure interaction by Alexander Rusch .
This adapter was developed for CalculiX version 2.16. Other versions may be compatible, yet they have not been tested. Please let us know if you want to use a different version.
Adapters for other versions of CalculiX and preCICE are available in various branches. Branches compatible with preCICE v2.x:
All other branches are compatible with preCICE v1.x.
