Several engineering and scientific applications require extensive use of Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) analysis. In particular the stability in rotating machinery is of special industrial interest in hydraulics, gas turbines, bearings, and many other industrial applications. However, rotordynamic problems are usually solved with simplified models based on the Reynolds equation instead of plain CFD due to the disparate scales of the geometrical dimensions in the clearance. We present somrecent progress in the solution of FSI problems, specially rotordynamics, using the Open Source package Code-Saturne from EDF.
