In an effort to provide accurate simulations of fluid-structure interactions in turbomachinery, this paper describes a powerful method to deform mesh, using interpolation based on radial basis functions (RBF). It has been assessed on a 3D annular turbine, including a tip gap. The main difficulty of this method is to define number and position of control points. A greedy algorithm is proposed to address this issue and is tested on the annular turbine and a deforming panel placed in a shock tube. Finally, the method is slightly adapted to take into account periodic boundary conditions, which allow mesh morphing for a unique interblade channel by preserving constant pitch on lateral boundaries.
