SUMMARY We present an algorithm for modeling coupled dynamic interactions between very thin ﬂexible structures immersed in a high-speed ﬂow. The modeling approach is based on combining an Eulerian ﬁnite volume formulation for the ﬂuid ﬂow and a Lagrangian large-deformation formulation for the dynamic response of the structure. The coupling between the ﬂuid and the solid response is achieved via an approach based on extrapolation and velocity reconstruction inspired in the Ghost Fluid Method. The algorithm presented does not assume the existence of a region exterior to the ﬂuid domain as it was previously proposed and, thus, enables the consideration of very thin open boundaries and structures where the ﬂow may be relevant on both sides of the interface. We demonstrate the accuracy of the method and its ability to describe disparate ﬂow conditions across a ﬁxed thin rigid interface without pollution of the ﬂow ﬁeld accross the solid interface by comparing with analytical solutions of compressible ﬂows. We also demonstrate the versatility and robustness of the method in a complex

1. Introduction

Current and future interplanetary exploration missions demand the availability of numerical tools for the design of light structures such as gossamer spacecraft and parachutes, [1, 2, 3]. In many situations of interest, an adequate description of the continuum ﬁelds in both the ﬂuid ﬂow and the solid structure dynamic deformations, as well as of their coupled interactions, is necessary. In this work we propose a computational strategy for modeling the coupled response of a thin structure immersed in a supersonic ﬂow. In general, the dynamic deformation of solid structures is most adequately described in a Lagrangian framework, especially in the case of large deformations. The main advantage of the Lagrangian approach lies in its natural ability to track the evolution of properties at material points in materials with history, as well as in the treatment of boundary conditions at material surfaces such as free boundaries or ﬂuid-solid interfaces. In contrast to Eulerian approaches, boundary conditions are enforced at material surfaces ab initio and therefore require no special attention. In this work, we propose a Lagrangian formulation for describing the large dynamic deformations of two-dimensional thin structures (rods) having both bending and membranal stiﬀness. By contrast, Lagrangian formulations are inadequate in the case of high-speed ﬂows or

2 ﬂows involving signiﬁcant vorticity due to the unavoidable mesh distortion incurred during deformation which reduces the stable time step and the overall accuracy of the simulation and, eventually, breaks the numerical method. This problem can be partially remedied by the use of remeshing [4]. However, remeshing increases the complexity of the algorithm and of its implementation and suﬀers from robustness problems in the three-dimensional case. Eulerian approaches, in which the ﬁeld equations are formulated in terms of spatial variables and ﬁxed or adaptive—albeit not distorting—meshes, are more adequate for most ﬂuid ﬂows. We concern ourselves with ﬂows where the viscous time scales far exceed the convection time scales, i.e. we model the ﬂuid ﬂow with the compressible Euler equations. In this work, the supersonic, unsteady ﬂow conditions are modeled by recourse to a ﬁnite volume formulation of the Euler equations of compressible ﬂow following Samtaney et al [5, 6]. A number of diﬀerent strategies for coupling ﬁxed-grid Eulerian ﬂuid dynamics formulations with Lagrangian solid mechanics formulations have been proposed. For incompressible viscous ﬂows, the immersed boundary method of Peskin and McQueen [7] has received signiﬁcant attention, especially owing to its success in modeling the complex conditions of blood ﬂow in the heart. A recent review of the method may be found in Peskin [8]. Several extensions of this method have been recently proposed by Liu [9]. Our work is concerned with problems involving high-speed compressible ﬂows. For this type of problems, the so-called Cartesian boundary method [10, 11] and the Embedded boundary approach of Colella et al [12] have recently gained signiﬁcant popularity. In these approaches, the computational domain is discretized by rectangular ﬁnite volume cells and the geometry is represented by intersections with the underlying Cartesian grid. This leads to “cut-cells” in those grid locations where the boundary intersects the grid. A detailed description of this

A similar treatment of irregular boundaries in cartesian grid approaches including second order accurate formulation of boundary conditions has been recently given by Sussman [19. The extended approach retains the basic concepts of the original algorithm. An alternative approach that explicitly avoids these issues from the outset by replacing the imposition of boundary conditions with an approach based on ﬁeld extrapolation into exterior ghost cells has been proposed [13. we extend this approach to the case of thin structures that at the same time are open and in which the ﬂow on both sides of the structure may be relevant. 14.
