flowstructure analysis
I want to do research on the flowstructure interaction problem. I need to make both flow and solidstress calculations for the same system. Because of the differing methodologies of the CFD and Stress Analysis codes, I must code myself, combining both finite Volume and Finite Element, or one new single algorithm to solve the NavierStokes equations of fluid, the displacement equation of the solid, the thermalenergy equation at the same time.
Where can I find the internet resource and reference book. thanks 
Re: flowstructure analysis
Do you want to do it yourself, or are you open to using commercial codes for doing it.
CFDACE+ from CFD Research Corporation has exactly what you need: A coupled fluidthermalstructural interaction capability. It does use Finite Elements for stress analysis and Finite Volume for the fluid part. Please visit our website for more information. You would find relevant informaiton at http://www.cfdrc.com/datab/software/software_index.html. Look under CFDFEMSTRESS. 
Re: flowstructure analysis
you don't need to write your own code. many commercial cfd and fea codes can be linked to perform complicated fluid structure analysis. if you already have a CFD /FEA code available you can contact the customer service or read the manuals to find out how you can solve the problem you want

Re: flowstructure analysis
Maybe you can contact the guy from Computational Dynamics Ltd. You can visit their web www.cd.co.uk, they have good solution for flowstructure analysis code called COCOLIB Good Luck
