Efficient solutions to robust, semi-implicit discretizations of the immersed boundary method

Abstract

The Immersed Boundary Method is a versatile tool for the investigation of flow-structure interaction. In a large number of applications, the immersed boundaries or structures are very stiff and strong tangential forces on these interfaces induce a well-known, severe time-step restriction for explicit discretizations. This excessive stability constraint can… (More)
