An unfitted Nitsche method for incompressible fluid-structure interaction using overlapping meshes

By Erik Burman and Miguel Angel Fernández


International audienceWe consider the extension of the Nitsche method to the case of fluid-structure interaction problems on unfitted meshes. We give a stability analysis for the space semi-discretized problem and show how this estimate may be used to derive optimal error estimates for smooth solutions, irrespectively of the mesh/interface intersection. We also discuss different strategies for the time discretization, using either fully implicit or explicit coupling (loosely coupled) schemes. Some numerical examples illustrate the theoretical discussion
