Fluid-structure interaction with an application to a body immersed and anchored in a fluid flow In this paper, an implicit coupling algorithm for fluid-structure interaction problems with under-time steps for the solid is presented. Its implementation on two configurations is achieved by using the CASTEM finite-elements code. First, the free oscillations of a cylinder in an annular fluid domain where its movement is determined by the coupled fluid-solid action is considered in the case of viscous fluid. It should be noted that the implicit coupling algorithm gives the best prediction of the structure oscillations. The under-time steps for the solid are introduced in order to obtain better results. Then, an application whose final objective is to model a floating barrage is studied. The main goal of this application is to predict the displacements of a ring completely immersed and anchored by a cable to the lower boundary of the fluid domain. The finite-element discretization of the Navier-Stokes equations in the ALE formulation is used.
