Proposal for Numerical Benchmarking of Fluid-Structure Interaction between an Elastic Object and Laminar Incompressible Flow

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computational Science and Engineering book series (LNCSE, volume 53)


We describe new benchmark settings for the rigorous evaluation of different methods for fluid-structure interaction problems. The configurations consist of laminar incompressible channel flow around an elastic object which results in self-induced oscillations of the structure. Moreover, characteristic flow quantities and corresponding plots are provided for a quantitative comparison.
