Abstract

This paper focuses on a weak coupling analysis system of 3-dimensional fluid-structure interaction problems. As the numerical discretization scheme, the stabilized incompressible smoothed particle hydrodynamics (ISPH) method is adopted for fluid dynamics involving free surface flow and the finite element method (FEM) is used for structural dynamics. To save cost in software developments maintenance, the open source software is utilized. Especially, a general-purpose finite element analysis system, named ADVENTURE_Solid, and a general-purpose coupling analysis platform, named REVOCAP_Coupler, are employed. Moreover, techniques of an interface marker on the fluid-structure boundary and a dummy mesh for a fluid analysis domain is adopted to solve the problem that the REVOCAP_Coupler performs to unify two or more grid-based method codes. To verify a developed system, the dam break problem with an elastic obstacle is demonstrated. Moreover, the effect of a relaxation parameter in the ISPH method is studied.
