Nonlinear fluid-structure interaction : a partitioned approach and its application through component technology

Abstract : A partitioned approach is studied to solve strongly coupled nonlinear fluid structure interaction problems. The stability, convergence and performance of explicit and implicit coupling algorithms are explored. The partitioned approach allows to re-use existing codes in a more general context. One purpose of this work is to be able to couple them as black-boxes. To that end, the scientific software component framework CTL is considered. Therefore a fluid and a structure component based on existing software are developed and coupled with a master code approach. Computational performance of different remote calls and parallel implementation of components are also depicted herein. The re-use of existing software allows to couple advanced models developed for both sub-problems. In this work, the structure part is solved by the Finite Element Method, with the possibility to use different non-linear and large deformation behaviors. For the fluid part, examples modeled with an arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian formulation are considered, solved with a finite volume method. The models used are first transient incompressible flows described by the Navier-Stokes equation, then free surface flows. With the latter, the impact of sloshing and breaking waves on model structures can be computed
