The goal of this mini-symposium (MS) is to provide a forum for investigators to share state-of-the art modeling solutions and numerical challenges unique to Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) applications. The MS will include novel FSI modeling approaches and numerical methods for the simulation of a variety of applications, including but not limited to biomechanical FSI, blast-on-structures, cavitation-induced damage, and fluid-thermal-structure interaction. Other areas of interest for this MS include applications of FSI to all scales, communication of software implementation details, performance evaluation of original and commercial codes, benchmark problems, and additional verification and validation schemes.
