This plenary paper presents a broad survey of the computational needs of the U. S. Navy regarding fluid structure interaction. Problems with the classic periodic/quasi-periodic response are emphasized, complemented by some transient response problems as well. A collection of Navy problems are presented to represent (1) operations on the land, the sea surface, below the sea surface, and in the air, (2) spanning the many existing and emerging hardware classes and types in the U. S. Navy inventory, for (3) a wide range of operational scenarios that experience fluid-structure interaction. The goals are to credibly illustrate the incredible diversity of Navy issues in this area, and to provide sufficient descriptions to allow for a meaningful appreciation of the computational needs.
