The objective is to develop new algorithms that can be used to solve fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems. FSI problems are ones where the flow interacts with structures like its boundaries or embedded particles, for example the flow of blood in the arteries and veins, the interaction of blood and heart valves, the flow of aqueous humor in the eyes, breathing, swallowing, movement of food in the alimentary canal. The flow affects the shape of these structures which in turn affects the flow features. FSI is an active and very challenging area of a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) research with particular relevance to biomedical engineering. The serial algorithms and developed source code will be further optimized using parallelization techniques.
