Is there any way of integrating Simulink with OpenFOAM (e.g. having an engine model in the first and a propeller model in the second)?

Although I currently don't have a direct example for this, it would technically be possible to do this using the FEATool Multiphyics MATLAB toolbox which includes OpenFOAM as a physics solver backend. In this way you could write a custom coupling between Simulink (or other MATLAB toolboxes) and OpenFOAM via/using the FEATool toolbox functions and API.

I am reading what you wrote here and did not understand properly. Please let me understnad your point.
So, we can run simulation in openfoam and in matlab. after that, we con connect together. Am I right?
I am looking for this scenario. how can I connect both of them here.....

Yes if you have only one subdomain.. multibody simulations are not possible at this time in FeaTool.. I tried it but it’s not going
