Coupling an Eulerian Fluid Calculation to a Lagrangian Solid Calculation with the Ghost Fluid Method

  title={Coupling an Eulerian Fluid Calculation to a Lagrangian Solid Calculation with the Ghost Fluid Method},
  author={Ronald Fedkiw},
We propose a numerical method for modeling multimaterial flows where the domain is decomposed into separate Eulerian and Lagrangian subdomains. That is, the equations are written in Eulerian form in one subdomain and Lagrangian form in the other subdomain. This is of interest, for example, when considering the effect of underwater explosions on the hull of a ship or the impact of a low speed projectile on a soft explosive target. On one hand, high speed fluid flows are traditionally modeled by… CONTINUE READING
