Finite-volume strategies in fluid-structure interaction problems would be of crucial importance in many engineering applications such as in the analysis of reed valves in reciprocating compressors. The efficient implementation of this strategy passes from the formulation of reliable high-order schemes on 3D unstructured meshes. The development of high-order models is essential in bending-dominant problems, where the phenomenon of shear blocking appears. In order to solve this problem, it is possible to either increase the number of elements or increase the interpolation order of the main variable. Increasing the number of elements does not always yield good results and implies a very high computational cost that, in real problems, is inadmissible. Using unstructured meshes is also vital because they are necessary for real problems where the geometries are complex and depart from canonical rectangular or regular shapes. This work presents a series of tests to demonstrate the feasibility of a high-order model using finite volumes for linear elasticity on unstructured and structured meshes. The high-order interpolation will be performed using two different schemes such as the Moving Least Squares (MLS) and the Local Regression Estimators (LRE). The reliability of the method for solving 2D and 3D problems will be verified by solving some known test cases with an analytical solution such as a thin beam or problems where stress concentrations appear.
