The immersed boundary method: a finite element approach

  title={The immersed boundary method: a finite element approach},
  author={Daniele Boffi and Lucia Gastaldi},
In this paper we consider a modification of the immersed boundary method based on a finite element approximation of the fluid. Besides some theoretical considerations, we present two-dimensional numerical examples which confirm the good behavior of the computed solutions.
