More then 10 years ago a large investment was made in extending the NSMB Navier Stokes Multi Block (NSMB) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) towards Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) simulations (Guillaume et al. in Fluid structure interaction simulation on the F/A-18 vertical tail, 2010 , Guillaume et al. in Aeronaut J 115:285–294, 2011 ). At that time a segregated approach was adopted using a loosely coupled approach. More recently NSMB was coupled to the open-source Finite Element Analysis environment B2000++ (http://www.smr.ch/products/b2000/ ) in a strongly coupled approach. This has led to the possibility to perform both static and dynamic FSI simulations using either a modal or a FEM approach without the need to interrupt the simulation. Results of aero-elastic simulations for the MDO-aircraft, the AGARD445.6 wing and for a Strut Braced Wing configuration will be presented.
