Abstract

Fluid structure interaction, as applied to flexible structures, has wide ap- plication in diverse areas such as flutter in aircraft, wind response of build- ings, flows in elastic pipes and blood vessels. Numerical modelling of dy- namic fluid-structure interaction(DFSI) involves the coupling of fluid flow and structural mechanics, two fields that are conventionally modelled using two dissimilar methods, thus a single comprehensive computational model of both phenomena is a considerable challenge and until recently work in this area focused on one phenomenon and represented the behaviour of the other more simply. A single, finite volume unstructured mesh(FV-UM) spatial discretisation method h as been employed on a single mesh for the entire domain. The
