Modeling Elastic Shells Immersed in Fluid

  title={Modeling Elastic Shells Immersed in Fluid},
  author={Edward Givelberg},
We describe a numerical method to simulate an elastic shell immersed in a viscous incompressible uid. The method is developed as an extension of the immersed boundary method using shell equations based on the Kirchho -Love and the planar stress hypotheses. A detailed derivation of the shell equations used in the numerical method is presented. This derivation as well as the numerical method, use techniques of di erential geometry in an essential way. Our main motivation for the development of… CONTINUE READING
