Recent Advances on Modeling Methods for Fluid-Structure Interaction Systems

Sheldon Wang, Anita Layton, Hong Luo

For the past decade, many new methods have been proposed for the modeling of fluid–structure interaction systems. The adaptation of the key concepts in the immersed boundary (IB) method along with various finite element methods (FEM) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) procedures have yielded many promising results and also generated many new questions.

This minisymposium in 12th U.S. National Congress on Computational Mechanics to be held July 22-25, 2013 in Raleigh, NC will provide us with a platform to disseminate recent advances and ideas concerning modeling methods for fluid-structure interactions. The broad topics of this minisymposium include fundamental developments, mathematical theories and algorithms, high performance computing, and various applications. This minisymposium has a focus on immersed methods and their different variations and applications, yet it is also open for other modeling strategies and techniques.
