Abstract : We present a partitioned procedure for fluid-structure interaction problems in which contacts among different deformable bodies can occur. A typical situation is the movement of a thin valve (e.g. the aortic valve) immersed in an incompressible viscous fluid (e.g. the blood). In the proposed strategy the fluid and structure solvers are considered as independent ``black-boxes'' that exchange forces and displacements; the structure solvers are moreover not supposed to manage contact by themselves. The hypothesis of non-penetration among solid objects defines a non-convex optimization problem. To solve the latter, we use an internal approximation algorithm that is able to directly handle the cases of thin structures and self-contacts. A numerical simulation on an idealized aortic valve is finally realized with the aim of illustrating the proposed scheme.
