Abstract

Fluid-Structure Interaction simulations have gained popularity in the research community because of their applications in several industrial and biological fields. In such problems mesh movement is necessary in order to clearly evaluate the deformed solid state and the stresses. In many cases, especially when large displacement occurs, the movement of the mesh nodes can reduce accuracy and convergence properties of the solver. In this paper we present an improved fluid structure interaction solver with a new moving mesh algorithm based on a multilevel Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian method to be used in the computation of the arbitrary fluid displacement field. This algorithm is used together with a multigrid, monolithic, fluid structure interaction solver for large displacement problem in which the mesh overlapping is more likely to happen. Numerical simulations in two and three-dimension for both hexahedral and tetrahedral meshes are reported in order to better investigate the capabilities of this solver.
