Normally in the fluid dynamics, we can have inlet velocity profile and pressure set as zero. this is typical way to fix pressure. In the fluid structure interaction,we have a solid mechanics side. Does that means we do not need to have a pressure boundary condition? can we set both inlet and outlet as velocity profile?

CFD solver solves for the pressure and applies it to the structure which then deforms(calculated by the structural solver) the solid, and so on...now why would you apply it yourself, purpose of FSI is to get the pressure and apply it on the solid in a coupled manner, initial conditions are needed, i.e. the results from CFD analysis are your boundary conditions on the solid. I honestly dont understand how you can start with coupled CFD/CSM (FSI) analysis without basic knowledge about the individual analysis.

I am asking because recently some researchers applied pressure on the solid side to have initial stress, and then use boundary condition inlet and outlet both side set as velocity. In other words, they give initial condition on the solid side. I am wondering, any problem with it or not? One more Q, regarding the initial condition, it can be either come from solid or fluid, am i right?
