Computational Fluid-Structure Interaction: Methods, Models, and Applications provides detailed explanations of a range of FSI models, their mathematical formulations, validations, and applications, with an emphasis on conservative unstructured-grid FVM. The first part of the book presents the nascent numerical methods, algorithms and solvers for both compressible and incompressible flows, computational structural dynamics (CSD), parallel multigrid, IOM, IMM and ALE methods. The second half covers the validations of these numerical methods and solvers, as well as their applications in a broad range of areas in basic research and engineering.

Key Features

  • Provides a comprehensive overview of the latest numerical methods used in FSI, including the unstructured-grid finite volume method (FVM), parallel multigrid scheme, overlapping mesh, immersed object method (IOM), immersed membrane method (IMM), arbitrary Lagragian-Eulerian (ALE), and more
  • Provides full details of the numerical methods, solvers and their validations
  • Compares different methods to help readers more effectively choose the right approach for their own FSI problems
  • Features real-life FSI case studies, such as large eddy simulation of aeroelastic flutter of a wing, parallel computation of a bio-prosthetic heart valve, and ALE study of a micro aerial vehicle


Researchers and postgraduate students with backgrounds in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, or biomedical engineering working on projects involving fluid structure interaction. Practicing CFD and FEA engineers and consultants
