The paper is concerned with an efficient partitioned coupling scheme developed for dynamic fluid-structure interaction problems in turbulent flows predicted by eddy-resolving schemes such as large-eddy simulation (LES). To account for the added-mass effect for high density ratios of the fluid to the structure, the semi-implicit scheme guarantees strong coupling among flow and structure, but also maintains the advantageous properties of explicit time-marching schemes often used for turbulence simulations. Thus by coupling an advanced LES code for the turbulent fluid flow with a code especially suited for the prediction of shells and membranes, an appropriate tool for the time-resolved prediction of instantaneous turbulent flows around light, thin-walled structures results. Based on an established benchmark case in laminar flow, i.e., the flow around a cylinder with an attached flexible structure at the backside, the entire methodology is analyzed thoroughly including a grid independence study. After this validation, the benchmark case is finally extended to the turbulent flow regime and predicted as a coupled FSI problem applying the newly developed scheme based on a predictor-corrector method. The entire methodology is found to be stable and robust. The turbulent flow field around the flexible structure and the deflection of the structure itself are analyzed in detail. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
