Abstract: The immersed boundary method is a well-known approach for modelling fluid- structure interaction (FSI) problems involving highly deformable elastic structures. Applications include a wide range of biofluid mechanical systems and the method is increasingly being applied to engineering problems as well. Recently, major advances have been achieved in algorithms (fast and robust solvers), theoretical results (convergence and stability analyses) and model extensions intended to capture a wider spectrum of FSI phenomena (multiphase flows, membrane transport, stochastic effects). This minisymposium will highlight these recent advances and survey some of the complex fluid flows that can be simulated using the method.
