EUROPLEXUS logo

EUROPLEXUS is a computer code for the simulation of fast transient fluid-structure interaction problems. It is co-owned by JRC and CEA and is developed jointly by the co-owners plus the members of a Consortium (currently including EDF and ONERA), and a number of Universities. Its application field ranges from blast analysis to assess strategic building vulnerability, to safety of power plants, chemical plants, transportation (blast in tunnels, crash), maritime (under-water explosions and impacts), design of the protection of critical infrastructure against terrorist attacks.
