We introduce a novel loosely coupled-type algorithm for fluid-structure interaction between blood flow and vascular walls. This algorithm successfully deals with the difficulties associated with the " added mass effect " , which is known to be the cause of numerical instabilities in fluid-structure interaction problems involving fluid and structure of… (More)
— In this article, we address the numerical solution of a non-smooth eigenvalue problem, which has implications in plasticity theory and image processing. The smallest eigenvalue of the non-smooth operator under consideration is shown to be the same for all bounded, sufficiently smooth, domains in two space dimensions. Piecewise linear finite elements are… (More)
The main goal of this article is to investigate the capability of an operator-splitting/finite elements based methodology at handling accurately incompressible viscous flow at large Reynolds number (Re) in regions with corners and curved boundaries. To achieve this goal the authors have selected a wall-driven flow in a semi-circular cavity. On the basis of… (More)
We present a new time-splitting scheme for the numerical simulation of fluid-structure interaction between blood flow and vascular walls. This scheme deals in a successful way with the problem of the added mass effect. The scheme is modular and it embodies the stability properties of implicit schemes at the low computational cost of loosely coupled ones.
We present a new model and a novel loosely coupled partitioned numerical scheme modeling fluid-structure interaction (FSI) in blood flow allowing non-zero longitudinal displacement. Arterial walls are modeled by a linearly viscoelastic, cylindrical Koiter shell model capturing both radial and longitudinal displacement. Fluid flow is modeled by the… (More)
