An unsteady point vortex method for coupled fluid – solid problems

  title={An unsteady point vortex method for coupled fluid – solid problems},
  author={S{\'e}bastien Michelin and Stefan G. Llewellyn Smith},
A method is proposed for the study of the two-dimensional coupled motion of a general sharp-edged solid body and a surrounding inviscid flow. The formation of vorticity at the body’s edges is accounted for by the shedding at each corner of point vortices whose intensity is adjusted at each time step to satisfy the regularity condition on the flow at the generating corner. The irreversible nature of vortex shedding is included in the model by requiring the vortices’ intensity to vary… CONTINUE READING
