Keywords: fluid-structure interaction, partitioned method, concrete structure.
The development of fluid-structure interaction (FSI) analysis has yielded both more complex applications and algorithmic improvements in problems consisting of both a fluid domain and a structural domain with the interaction in between. The purpose of this paper is to enhance the understanding of the fluid-structure interaction behaviour and the numerical techniques of analyzing the problem of FSI. There are two distinct partitioned methods in FSI which are the weak and strong two-way partition algorithm solutions. The fluid flow is governed by the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations and the motion of the fluid domain is accounted for by arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) formulation. Numerical examples were produced with the approach of both the weak and strong two-way couplings algorithms from ANSYS. The efficiency and robustness of both algorithms were made in comparisons with the results provided from the numerical examples.
