Abstract

This paper describes a strategy to solve multi-fluid and Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) problems using Lagrangian particles combined with a fixed Finite Element (FE) mesh . Our approach is an extension of the fluid-only PFEM-2 [1,2] which uses explicit integration over the streamlines [...]

Abstract

In this paper, the so‐called added‐mass effect is investigated from a different point of view of previous publications. The monolithic fluid–structure problem is partitioned using [...]

Abstract

The paper aims to introduce new fluid–structure interaction (FSI) tests to compare experimental results with numerical ones. The examples have [...]

Abstract

In this two-part paper we begin the development of a new class of methods for modeling fluid–structure interaction (FSI) phenomena for air blast. [...]

Abstract

We present a Lagrangian monolithic strategy for solving fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems. The formulation is called Unified because fluids and solids are solved using the same solution scheme and unknown variables. The method is based on a mixed velocity-pressure formulation. [...]
