Existence of Strong Solutions for a System Coupling the Navier–Stokes Equations and a Damped Wave Equation



We consider a fluid–structure interaction problem coupling the Navier–Stokes equations with a damped wave equation which describes the displacement of a part of the boundary of the fluid domain. The system is considered first in the two-dimensional setting and in a second part it is adapted to the three-dimensional setting.
