In multi-physics numerical computations a good choice of code coupling schemes is required. Several methods are possible like: an explicit synchronous scheme an Euler implicit method and no interpolation on velocity pressure; an explicit asynchonous scheme using a Crank-Nicholson time integration scheme and interpolation on velocity and pressure; an implicit scheme using a fixed iterative method. In the present paper these different schemes are compared for application in fluid structure interaction field. In the first part numerical coupling schemes are presented. Then their capability to ensure energy conservation is discussed according to numerical results obtained in analytical test cases. Finally application of coupling process to fluid structure interaction problems is investigated and results are discussed in terms of added mass and damping induced by a fluid for a structure vibrating in fluid at rest.
