In the context of the PELskin project, a homogenized model to study flows over and inside poroelastic media has been developed. It allows to simulate the fluid–structure interaction between a fluid and an extremely dense poroelastic medium, without limitations on physical and geometrical parameters such as the density of the elastic material, the porosity or the number of periodic microstructures which constitute the medium. The model is applied to the case of the flow in a channel driven by an oscillating pressure gradient, with half the channel covered by a carpet of flexible, densely packed fibers, connected to each other to allow for the propagation of the deformation field.
