The INTERNODES (INTERpolation for NOnconforming DEcompositionS) method is an interpolation based approach to solve partial differential equations on non-conforming discretizations. In this paper we apply the INTERNODES method to different problems such as the Fluid Structure Interaction problem and the Stokes-Darcy coupled problem that models the filtration of fluids in porous media. Our results highlight the flexibility of the method as well as its optimal rate of convergence.
