Abstract: A hybrid meshfree-Cartesian grid method is proposed for simulating three dimensional fluid-solid interaction (FSI) problems involving rigid bodies with large boundary motions. The rigid body is embedded and enveloped by a cloud of mesh-free nodes, which convect with the motion of the body against a background of Cartesian nodes. Spatial discretization is accomplished by the combination of a Generalized Finite Difference (GFD) method and conventional finite difference (FD) method applied to the meshfree and Cartesian nodes respectively. Error minimization in GFD is carried out by singular value decomposition (SVD). A time-implicit iterative procedure is employed to compute the new/evolving position of the immersed bodies together with the dynamically coupled solutions of the flow field and bodies. The present method is applied to simulate the FSI problems of freely falling bodies in quiescent flow and freely rotating bodies in shear flow. The good agreement with published results validates the ability of the present hybrid meshfree-Cartesian grid scheme for solving FSI problems in 3D. © 2009 WIT Press.
