Fluid-Structure Interaction: An Introduction to FiniteElement Coupling fulfils the need for an introductive approachto the general concepts of Finite and Boundary Element Methods forFSI, from the mathematical formulation to the physicalinterpretation of numerical simulations. Based on theauthor’s experience in developing numerical codes forindustrial applications in shipbuilding and in teaching FSI to bothpracticing engineers and within academia, it provides acomprehensive and self–contained guide that is geared towardboth students and practitioners of mechanical engineering. Composedof six chapters, Fluid–Structure Interaction: An Introduction to FiniteElement Coupling progresses logically from formulations andapplications involving structure and fluid dynamics, fluid andstructure interactions and opens to reduced order-modelling forvibro-acoustic coupling. The author describes simple yetfundamental illustrative examples in detail, using analyticaland/or semi–analytical formulation & designed both toillustrate each numerical method and also to highlight a physicalaspect of FSI. All proposed examples are simple enough to becomputed by the reader using standard computational tools such asMATLAB, making the book a unique tool for self–learning andunderstanding the basics of the techniques for FSI, or can serve asverification and validation test cases of industrial FEM/BEM codesrendering the book valuable for code verification and validationpurposes.
