Regularity issue for the system describing elastic structure interacting with the Navier-Stokes equations

We are interested in the interaction of a viscous incompressible fluid with a elastic structure, where the structure is located on a part of the fluid boundary. It reacts to the surface forces induced by the fluid and deforms the reference domain to the moving domain. The fluid equations are coupled with the structure via the kinematic condition and the action-reaction principle on the interface. We first study the 2D visco-elastic shell interacts with 3D Navier-Stokes equations. Especially in a general reference geometry (the shell deforms along the normal direction of the flexible boundary), we prove a counterpart of the classical Ladyzhenskaya-Prodi-Serrin condition yielding conditional regularity and uniqueness of a solution. This requires additionally the deformation of the shell is Lipschitz continuous. Then we consider a 1D perfectly elastic plate, deforming vertically in flat case, interacts with 2D Navier-Stokes equations, which thereby gives a hyperbolic evolution. We show the new regularity result for this parabolic-hyperbolic coupled system. It turns out that the "parabolic effect" of the fluid suffices to regularize the solution to the coupled fluid-structure system which is previously known for the Navier-Stokes equations in fixed domains. This is based on joint work with D. Breit (Clausthal), P. Mensah (Clausthal) and S. Schwarzacher (Uppsala).
