PrescribedUvlm
- class sharpy.solvers.prescribeduvlm.PrescribedUvlm[source]
This class runs a prescribed rigid body motion simulation of a rigid aerodynamic body.
The settings that this solver accepts are given by a dictionary, with the following key-value pairs:

None
structural_solver_settings
dict
Dictionary of settings for the structural solver
None
aero_solver
str
Aerodynamic solver to use in the coupled simulation
None
aero_solver_settings
dict
Dictionary of settings for the aerodynamic solver
None
n_time_steps
int
Number of time steps for the simulation
None
dt

postprocessors
list(str)
List of the postprocessors to run at the end of every time step
[]
postprocessors_settings
dict
Dictionary with the applicable settings for every
postprocessor
. Everypostprocessor
needs its entry, even if empty{}
cfl1
bool
If it is
True
, it assumes that the discretisation complies with CFL=1True
