A method suitable for computing fluid flow in the pres ence of moving boundaries is presented. In partic ular, the interaction of fluid with elastic walls is con sidered. The flow solver was developed based on ar tificial compressibility concept. The discrretization is done on unstructured tetrahedral meshes. A model of fluid interaction with elastic boundaries including boundary and mesh deformations was incorporated. Several applications of fluid interaction with elastic membranes are presented.
