In this work three branches of Immersed Boundary Methods (IBM) are described and validated for incompressible aerodynamics and fluid-structure interactions. These three approaches are: Cut Cell method, Vortex-Penalization method and Forcing method. The first two techniques are validated for external bluff-body flow around a circular obstacle. The last one is used to predict the deformations of an elastic membrane immersed in a fluid. The paper confirms the ability of this family of numerical schemes for accurate and robust simulation of incompressible flows.

Dans ce travail, trois méthodes de frontière immergée sont décrites et validées pour la simulation numérique en aérodynamique incompressible et interactions fluide-structure. Ces trois approches sont : une méthode Cut Cell, une méthode Vortex-Penalisation et une méthode de forçage. Les deux premières techniques sont validées pour l’écoulement autour d’un obstacle cylindrique. La dernière est utilisée pour prédire les déformations d’une membrane élastique immergée dans un fluide. Ce papier confirme la capacité de cette famille de schémas numériques à simuler les écoulements incompressibles de manière précise et robuste.
