We propose a general variational framework for the adaptive finite element approximation of fluid-structure interaction problems. The modeling is based on an Eule- rian description of the (incompressible) fluid as well as the (elastic) structure dynamics. This is achieved by tracking the movement of the initial positions of all 'material' points. In this approach the deformation appears as a primary variable in an Eulerian framework. Our approach uses a technique which is similar to the Level… CONTINUE READING
