CalculiX-preCICE adapter

The adapter was initially developed for conjugate heat transfer (CHT) simulations via preCICE by Lucia Cheung in the scope of her master’s thesis [1] 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 [2].

The latest version of the adapter is based on CalculiX version 2.20. Legacy versions of the adapter for older versions of CalculiX are supported on various branches. Branches for CalculiX version older than 2.15 require preCICE v1.x, whereas newer versions rely on preCICE v2.x.
