A transmission problem for fluid-structure interaction in the exterior of a thin domain

Abstract

We study the behavior of weak solutions to a time-harmonic fluid-structure interaction problem in the exterior of a thin, elastic domain, in the limit of vanishing thickness. Boundary integral operators are used to reduce the exterior problem. Formal asymptotic expansions are developed and justified. The asymptotic procedure is simple, and involves the solution of a reduced exterior problem. Exact representation formulae for the elastic displacements in the thin domain are also provided.
