    ABSTRACT: 
  /AB    The proposed extended immersed boundary method (EIBM) has several 
    distinct features in comparison with the immersed boundary (IB) method. In 
    the IB method, the interaction between the immersed elastic boundary and 
    the surrounding viscous fluid is replaced with an equivalent body force 
    distribution within the fluid domain. The key ingredient of the IB method 
    is the enforcement of the energy input from the equivalent body force into 
    the fluid domain to be the same (at all time) as that of the elastic forces 
    within the IB. In EIBM, instead of the volumeless immersed elastic 
    boundary, we consider the submerged elastic solid which occupies a finite 
    volume within the fluid domain. In particular, we replace the kinematic and 
    dynamic matching of the fluid-solid interface and the effect of the 
    submerged solid with a judiciously chosen collection of equivalent nodal 
    forces calculated in the context of finite element formulations. The 
    employment of the finite element representation enables a realistic stress 
    analysis for the submerged solid subject to large deformations. Finally, in 
    EIBM, we also replace the discretized delta function commonly used in the 
    IB method with the kernel functions in meshless reproducing kernel particle 
    method (RKPM). With this improvement, using the same finite support domain, 
    we could improve the discretized delta function from C' to C" continuity, 
    where n is chosen according to the required smoothness and resolution of 
    such functions, and more importantly, enables the use of non-uniform 
    meshing in the fluid domain. These extensions may eventually open doors to 
    the modelling of complex biological fluid involving molecular, cellular, 
    and flexible vessel-flow interactions.
