Abstract : We are interested in the simulation of blood flows in large arteries. In the frame of domain decomposition standard explicit coupling schemes can be viewed as one iteration in a Dirichlet-Neumann algorithm with a convenient first guess. For this class of problems, such coupling schemes are unstable due to the added mass effect. Implicit coupling schemes based on a Dirichlet-Neumann algorithm avoid these instabilities but are computationaly time consuming. Robin-Neumann schemes, recently introduced, guarantee stability and optimal first-order accuracy for a linear Stokes/thin-solid coupled system. In this explicit coupling schemes, the displacement is extrapolated in the fluid sub-step and then it is corrected in the solid. These algorithms will be presented in a fully non-linear framework for the coupling of the Navier-Stokes equations (in ALE form) with a non-linear shell structure or a three dimensional structure. Comparisons in terms of accuracy and efficiency with more standard schemes such as non-incremental explicit schemes and implicit schemes will be discussed.
