Fluid-Structure Interaction Algorithms and Applications

Jonathan Pitt, Scott Miller

This mini-symposium focuses on fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems. Contributions detailing both algorithm and software development and/or applications are sought. In particular, papers comparing and benchmarking the performance of such algorithms, implementation details, and interesting or novel applications are welcome. Presentations detailing the use of monolithic and/or partitioned FSI approaches, finite elements and/or finite volumes, and research and/or commercial codes are encouraged. The goal of this mini symposium is to provide a forum for investigators to discuss state-of-the art solutions to the modeling and numerical challenges unique to FSI problems. Novel papers describing the application of FSI technology to problems of all scales are also desired, and the sharing of software implementation details and benchmark problems is also encouraged.

Targeted themes for this session include:

* The identification of problems requiring fully-coupled FSI algorithms

* Computational algorithms for solving FSI problems

* Performance evaluation of original and commercial codes

* Verification and validation schemes and benchmarks

* ALE formulations, Eulerian formulations, moving-mesh methods

* Discretization techniques and approximation spaces
