An Improved FE-BE Method for Solving the Fluid-Structure Interaction Problems of Plates
This paper proposed a numerical approach called improved FE-BE (finite element-boundary element) method to solve the fluid-structure interaction problems of plate-like systems. In order to avoid the mesh of both faces of the thin plates, some dumb structures were added to make the plate systems closed. Thus the conventional FE-BE method can be adopted to solve this problem. The dynamic response equation of the inner region can be obtained by the FE method, and the acoustic added mass and damping coefficients of the exterior region can be obtained by the BE method. Then the final fluid-structure interaction equation can be easily solved. Numerical results of some examples are computed to demonstrate the validation of the present method. The comparison of numerical results and reference solutions shows that the proposed method is acceptable for solving the fluid-structure interaction of plates.
