Keywords: fluid-structure interaction, finite volume, parallel algorithm, message passing interface, shared memory.
This paper deals with the parallel solution of fluid-structure applications. To do so, we used a fluid-structure algorithm which consists the coupling between two solvers: one for the fluid and one for the structure. Those two solvers are parallelized on their own and the results are exchanged between each other. The parallel simulations are performed on a shared memory cluster consisting in 8 processors. The performances of the parallel simulations are presented and analyzed.
