A sharp interface Lagrangian-Eulerian method for flexible-body fluid-structure interaction

A sharp-interface approach to simulating FSI involving fluid-structure interaction (FSI) involving general nonlinear material models and across a broad range of mass density ratios is introduced.

An immersed peridynamics model of fluid-structure interaction accounting for material damage and failure

This paper develops and benchmarks an immersed peridynamics method to simulate the deformation, damage, and failure of hyperelastic materials within a fluid-structure interaction framework. The

The Lagrangian‐Eulerian coupling approach developed in this work enables the effective use of these coarse structural meshes with the immersed boundary method and contrasts two different weak forms of the equations, one of which is demonstrated to be more effective for the coarse structural discretizations facilitated by the coupling approach.

Immersed finite element method

Semi-implicit formulation of the immersed finite element method

The semi-implicit formulation of the IFEM algorithm is developed so that several terms of the interfacial forces are implicitly evaluated without going through the force distribution process and is capable of handling highly discontinuous physical properties quite well without any numerical difficulties.
