Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A modeling of the turbulent flow in a complex passage with dynamical fluid-structure interaction (FSI) is established on the generalized variational principle. A monolithic coupling method on the finite element formulations (FEM) is used to realize numerical computation of the flow with dynamical FSI. The comparisons with LES show that the results on the FEM formulations suggested in this paper are favorable, and the computing effort is economical.
