Abstract

We present a new efficient scheme for loose coupling in fluid-structure-interaction problems as they typically appear in the context of aircraft design. This coupling scheme is based upon a multivariate scattered data interpolation approach, based on radial basis functions and partition of unity methods. It allows us to couple arbitrary meshes on fluid and structure side. It conserves virtual work and forces. It is designed for large scale problems and allows the coupling of entire aircraft meshes.
