In computation of fluid-structure interactions, we use mesh update methods consisting of mesh-moving and remeshing-as-needed. When the geometries lire complex and the structural displacements are large, it becomes even more important that the mesh moving techniques lire designed with the objective to reduce the frequency of remeshing. To that end, we present here mesh moving techniques where the motion of the nodes is governed by the equations of elasticity, with selective treatment of mesh…

Mesh Moving Scheme Based on Solving the Laplace Equation with Jacobian Stiffening Technique

Mesh moving scheme is an important issue in many fluid-structure interaction problems. In this paper a new mesh motion technique is presented for the effective treatment of moving mesh. The entire

A linear-elasticity-based mesh moving method with no cycle-to-cycle accumulated distortion

The back-cycle-based mesh moving (BCBMM) method, introduced recently with two versions, can remedy the problem of cycle-to-cycle accumulated mesh distortion, and this article presents mesh moving test computations with the BCBMM for the first time.

We develop a dynamic mesh adjustment scheme for moving boundary problems such as those encountered in fluid–structure interaction. The scheme is implemented in an arbitrary Lagrangian–Eulerian (ALE)

A mesh moving technique with minimum-height-based stiffening for fluid-structure interaction analysis

The practical use of the fluid-structure interactions (FSI) analysis system requires the robustness for the parametric design of artifacts. In the FSI analysis employing interface tracking methods,

A minimal element distortion strategy for computational mesh dynamics

The mesh motion strategy is defined as an optimization problem where the material constitutive law is defined in terms of the minimization of certain energy functional that takes into account the degree of element distortion.



Computation of unsteady incompressible flows with the stabilized finite element methods: Space-time formulations, iterative strategies and massively parallel implementations

A new mesh moving scheme is presented that minimizes the need for remeshing; in this scheme the motion of the mesh is governed by the modified equations of linear homogeneous elasticity.
