This paper presents some models available in the PLEXIS-3C computer code for the description of interactions of the permanent type between fluids and structures in fast transient dynamic problems. PLEXIS-3C uses a new algorithm that automatises the geometrical definition of the fluid-structure interface. This can deal with any type of structure, including both continuum and structural elements, with or without a topological thickness, or even represent the interaction between immiscible fluids.
