The subspace iteration method, commonly used for solving symmetric eigenvalue problems in structural dynamics, can be extended to solve nonsymmetric fluid-structure interaction problems in terms of fluid pressure and structural displacement. The two cornerstones for such extension are a nonsymmetric equation solver for the inverse iteration and a nonsymmetric eigen-procedure for subspace eigen-solution. The implementation of a nonsymmetric equation solver can easily be obtained by modifying the existing symmetric procedure; however, the nonsymmetric eigen-solver requires a new procedure such as the real form of the LZ -algorithm. With these extensions the subspace iteration method can solve large fluid-structure interaction problems by extracting a group of eigenpairs at a time. The method can generally be applied to compressible and incompressible fluid-structure interaction problems.
