Abstract:

State-of-the-art numerical methods for solving moving boundary problems arising from multiphase flow and fluid-structure interaction modeling are reviewed. The emphasis of the review is on robust methods that do not require the mesh to conform to the moving boundary. The impetus for this review is the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratorys mission in navigation. Accurately predicting the effect of a vessel on a waterway and the vessel motion are required to support the navigation mission as is accurately predicting wave interaction with coastal and hydraulic structures. A key part of making accurate predictions in these cases is solving moving boundary problems. This report identifies promising directions for research and development of in-house, state-of-the-art computational models.
