The number of grid points exceeds the present computer capacity; Most of the points are used to resolve inner layers Wall models needed Flapping wings: moving boundaries Grid embedding or multi-domain strategies : increase cost Unstructured grids: negative impact on stability and convergence Classic deformation or re-meshing strategies: additional overhead 1.

**Numerical methods for moving boundaries**

Boundary Conditions Mesh Complex/moving boundary Computing turbulence Body-fitted method Directly imposed Body-fitted Mesh-smoothing Or re-meshing Less efficient Overset method two or more sets meshes Hole cutting, interpolation in the overlapping region Being explored Immersed Method Forcing in body vicinity Cartesian mesh no more difficulty Efficiency, better conservation property Four different IB strategies for complex geometries A direction forcing at Lagrangian points Interpolation based on volume of fraction Explicit linear interpolation Ghost cell approach

**A direct forcing approach (a IB method)**

Virtual forces are prescribed on the Cartesian grids to avoid body-fitting grids - represent the effects of body on flows - obtained to impose boundary conditions on body/flow interface IB for turbulence requires the near wall resolution in all 3 directions - local refinement Four essential steps: - track the locations of body/face interface in a Lagrangian fashion - formulate an adequate virtual force at the interface locations - transfer that force smoothly to the Eulerian grid nodes - time advancement of the Navier-Stokes equations in the Cartesian grids
