The aim of this work is to model the transient dynamic interaction between multicomponent compressible fluid flows and general elasto-plastic structures possibly undergoing large motions and large deformations. The fluid domain is treated by a node-centred finite volume method, using an approximate Riemann solver to compute the numerical flux. The use of an Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian kinematical description and of a nonstructured fluid grid are essential for the adopted coupling strategy with the structural domain, which is modelled by finite elements and uses a Lagrangian description.
