Vortex methods rely principally on a discretization of the continuous two-dimensional time dependent vorticity eld into a large number of vortex \blobs", whose position and strength determine the underlying velocity eld. In this paper, the convergence of the random vortex method (RVM) for a complex ow is studied in function of three discretization(More)
In this work three branches of Immersed Boundary Methods (IBM) are described and validated for incompressible aerodynamics and fluid-structure interactions. These three approaches are: Cut Cell method, Vortex-Penalization method and Forcing method. Two first techniques are validated for external bluff-body flows and the last one is used for fluid-structure(More)
