The discrete vortex method for numerical simulation of two-dimensional flows is applied to six problems in fluid-structure interaction: steady flow over bluff and streamlined sections, flow with transverse oscillations of the free stream, oscillation in otherwise still reservoir, vibration induced by steady flow, flow-induced vibration in oscillating flow, and impulsively started flow. Direct comparison is made with various formulations and with experimental data.
