Period25 Nov - 01 Dec 2007
This volume contains the abstracts of a series of talks given at a mini-workshop in Oberwolfach on the theory and numerics of continuum mechanical fluid-solid/structure interaction. The characteristics of these coupled multi-field problems are that the displacement of the solid/structure has a direct influence on the surrounding flow and vice versa. This interaction is generally nonlinear making the modeling complicated. The mathematical analysis concentrates on the well-posedness of the models in order to provide a rigorous explanation of fundamental experiments. Various competing numerical approaches are discussed based on different variational formulations and mainly using finite element methods.
