FSI modeling with the DSD/SST method for the fluid and finite difference method for the structure

  • Fang-Bao Tian
Original Paper

Abstract

We present a fluid–structure interaction (FSI) modeling method based on using the deforming-spatial-domain/stabilized space–time (DSD/SST) method for the fluid mechanics part and a finite difference (FD) method for the structural mechanics part. As the structural mechanics model, we focus on the thin-shell model. The fluid mechanics equations with moving boundaries are solved with the DSD/SST method and the thin-shell structural mechanics equation is solved with a FD method, with partitioned coupling between the two parts. The coupling of the DSD/SST and FD solvers makes sure that the boundary conditions on the fluid-structure interface at the end of each time step are matched between the fluid and the structure. A hanging plate in vacuum under gravitational force is performed to validate the structure solver. In addition, a pitching plate in a uniform flow is simulated to validate the FSI solver. The present results are in reasonable agreement with data predicted by other methods.

Keywords
