Vorticity-based flow simulation around moving bodies

This paper develops a computational method to simulate fluid flow interacting with moving solid objects. The approach represents flow using the vorticity field, which simplifies treatment of the pressure term. A sharp-interface immersed boundary method is introduced that achieves second-order accuracy even with moving boundaries. The method is extended to allow two-way coupling between flow and moving rigid bodies. Various validations demonstrate the approach's accuracy for one- and two-way coupled problems.
