 April 14, 2008, 08:50 How to impose interface condition in FSI #1 jinwon park Guest   Posts: n/a Hello! I am treating the coupling between the fluid and the structure. To impose the interaction btw them, I have to impose following continuity relations nf*uf=nf*us : continuity of normal displacements nf*vf=nf*vs : continuity of normal velocities nfp=ns*sigma : continuity of interface traction vector where nf and ns are normal vecotr, and sigma is the stress tensor on the structure. My questions on this subject are that 1. how to find normal displacments and velociteis. i.e., velocities consist of x-and y-directional component vx and vy, thus normal velocities are determined by vx*nx+vy*ny. How can I find the normal vectors to determine the normal values?
