Arbitrary LagrangianEulerian method?
Hellow everyone.
I'm interested in the ALE method, but it's hard to find some references. Please let me know where can I find one. Thanks. 
Re: Arbitrary LagrangianEulerian method?
Los Alamos reports are probably the best source. I would suggest contacting their library and looking for reports by authors such as A.A.Amsden and C.W.Hirt.

Better yet, try the T3 group web site at Los Alamos. The T stands for "Theory" and the 3 is the fluids group. They're at:

Hi,
The original paper of the ALE method is: Hirt, CW; Amsden, AA; Cook,JL;"An arbitrary LagrangeanEulerean computing method for all flow speeds", J.Comput.Phys., no14, pp 227253, 1974. After that there are some finite element work on fluid structure interactions, such as: Belishko, T; Flanagan, DP; "Finite element method with usercontroled meshes for fluid structure interaction", Comput. Methods Applied Mech. Eng., no.33, pp 669688, 1982. Donea et al."An arbitrary lagrangeaneulerian finite element method for transient dynamic fluid stucture interactions", Comput. Methods Applied Mech. Eng., no.33, pp 689723, 1982. And a finite volume method to solve moving boundaries Abdullah,Z; saculdean, M; " Freesurface flow during the filling of a cylinder", Int. Journal for Num. Methods in Fluids, vol. 11, pp 151168, 1990. I hope those are of some help. Cheers Neyval

Thank very much! I found several interesting references. Thanks again.

A great reference: J.R.Hughes, W.K.Liu, T.K.Zimmermann  Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering 29 (1981) 329349
I am using it right now!!! Astrid

"Computational and Experimental Study of Liquid Sheet Emanating from Simplex Fuel Nozzle." AIAA Journal, Vol.36, No.2, February 1998
I would recommend you to read this journal. I think it should give you some ideas about the application of arbitraryLagrangianEulerian numerical method in CFD. You can also get some references of the places to look for ALE methods. Good luck!!!
