An adaptive finite element solver for transient problems with moving bodies. (English) Zbl 0668.73053
The combination of adaptive remeshing techniques, flow solvers for transient problems with moving grids, and integrators for rigid body motion is presented. The resulting scheme allows the economic simulation of fully coupled fluid-rigid body interaction problems of arbitrary geometric complexity. Several results are given to demonstrate the capabilities developed.
