Investigation of shock/elastic obstacles interactions by means of a coupling technique

Abstract : Arrays of obstacles have proved to be an efficient way of attenuating shock waves generated by large scale explosions. The present study intends to take into account fluid-structure interactions that may occur when elastic obstacles are used. A tractable coupling tool based on a partitioned procedure is exposed, validated on the supersonic flutter of a panel and applied to a configuration composed of square section cylinders. Several numerical difficulties related to staggering are emphasized and workarounds discussed. A methodical procedure involving one and two-way coupled simulations highlights the influence of material properties as well as the acceleration of waves in the fluid when an initial motion is prescribed to the obstacles. Finally, it is shown that uncoupled simulations may be relevant to investigate shock mitigation in some given cases.
