The paper deals with an implicit partitioned solution approach for the numerical simulation of fluid-structure interaction problems. The solution procedure involves the finite-volume flow solver FASTEST, the finite-element structural solver FEAP, and the coupling interface MpCCI. The method is verified and validated by comparisons with benchmark results and experimental data. Investigations concerning the influence of the grid movement technique and an underrelaxation on the performance of the method are presented.
