We study a nonlinear fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problem between an incompressible, viscous fluid and a composite elastic structure consisting of two layers: a thin layer (membrane) in direct contact with the fluid, and a thick layer (3D linearly elastic structure) sitting on top of the thin layer. The coupling between the fluid and structure, and the(More)
There exists several models for the simulation of vascular flows; they span from simple circuit models, to full three dimensional ones which take into account detailed features of the blood and of the arterial wall. Each model comes with benefits and drawbacks, the main denominator being a compromise between detailed resolution requirements versus(More)
I, Christoph Jäggli, declare that this thesis titled, 'FETI-DP Domain Decomposition Method' and the work presented in it are my own. I confirm that: This work was done wholly or mainly while in candidature for a research degree at this University. Where any part of this thesis has previously been submitted for a degree or any other qualification at this(More)
The accurate prediction of transmural stresses in arterial walls requires on the one hand robust and efficient numerical schemes for the solution of boundary value problems including fluid-structure interactions and on the other hand the use of a material model for the vessel wall that is able to capture the relevant features of the material behavior. One(More)
