First of all thank you for developing this amazing library! It’s quite something to be able to couple code for FSI and have simulations running in a matter of weeks!
I am using preCICE to couple an in-house finite-volume immersed boundary method code called Lotus, (written in Fortran) to CalculiX to do some FSI of sheets/membranes. I have the following questions:
When running the simulations, the memory usage gradually increases up to the point where all my available memory is used (this takes a while but my simulations run for a while). This is not a problem with our in-house code, as running the rigid-body version of the problem result in a constant memory usage, and the same with CalculiX.
Is there a way to have one of the participant stop the simulation internally, instead of when the time reached the maximum set in the
precice-config.xmlfile? For now, I can exit the time integration loop, but the simulation then stops at the
finalize()call (I suppose this is because for the other participant
Here is my precice config file
precice-config.xml (2.1 KB)
Thanks in advance
