Special Issue on Innovative Computational Methods for Wave Propagation; Guest Editor: F. MagoulèsNo Access


    In this paper we present various numerical methods for solving time-dependent fluid-structure interaction problem in two or three dimensions that we claim to be efficient, robust and highly accurate. These methods, based on mixed variational formulations, are explicit and conservative and can be of arbitrary high order in space. Their accuracy will be illustrated via a comparison with analytical solutions in simple configuration.
