In this work, we present a conservative method for three-dimensional inviscid fluid-structure interaction problems. On the fluid side, we consider an inviscid Euler fluid in conservative form. The Finite Volume method uses the OSMP high-order flux with a Strang operator directional splitting . On the solid side, we consider an elastic deformable solid. In order to examine the issue of energy conservation, the behavior law is here assumed to be linear elasticity. In order to ultimately deal with rupture, we use a Discrete Element method for the discretization of the solid . An immersed boundary technique is employed through the modification of the Finite Volume fluxes in the vicinity of the solid. Since both fluid and solid methods are explicit, the coupling scheme is designed to be globally explicit too. The computational cost of the fluid and solid methods lies mainly in the evaluation of fluxes on the fluid side and of forces and torques on the solid side. The coupling algorithm evaluates these only once every time step, ensuring the computational efficiency of the coupling. Our approach is an extension to the three-dimensional deformable case of the conservative method developed in . We focus herein numerical results assessing the robustness of the method in the case of a undeformable solid with large displacements subjected to a compressible fluid flow.
