The Immersed Boundary Method (IBM), originally developed by Peskin [5], is a very practical method of simulating fluid-structure interactions. It combines Eulerian and Lagrangian descriptions of flow and moving elastic boundaries using Dirac delta functions. Incompressible Navier-Stokes (NS) and elasticity theory can be unified by the same set of equations to get a combined model of the interaction.
