The purpose of the software EMPIRE is to perform n-code co-simulation for solving multiphysics problems. EMPIRE provides a flexible way for constructing vari- ous co-simulation environments by introducing the concepts of connection and filter. It also provides data operations useful for general co-simulation including mapping between non-matching grids, extrapolation in time and relaxation in iterative coupling. The con- cepts and ingredients of EMPIRE are presented in this paper. Finally, the software is demonstrated by two FSI simulations.
