The numerical simulation of multiphysics problems has grown steadily in recent years. This development is due to both the permanent increase of IT resources and the considerable progress made in modeling, mathematical and numerical analysis of many problems in fluid and solid mechanics. The phenomena related to fluid/structure mechanical coupling occurs in many industrial situations, and the influence it may have on the dynamic behavior of mechanical systems is often significant. In this paper, a numerical vibratory study is conducted on a three-dimensional aircraft’s wing subjected to aerodynamic loads. Finite volume method (FVM) is used for the discretization of the fluid problem, and finite element method (FEM) is used for the structure’s approximation. In this context, a deterministic model has been proposed in our study, then stochastic analysis has been developed to deal with the statistical nature of fluid–structure interaction parameters. Moreover, probabilistic-based reliability analysis intends to find safe and cost-effective projects. View Full-Text
