We propose a quasi-Newton algorithm for solving fluid-structure interaction problems. The basic idea of the method is to build an approximate tangent operator which is cost effective and which takes into account the so-called added mass effect. Various test cases show that the method allows a significant reduction of the computational effort compared to relaxed fixed point algorithms. We present 2D and 3D fluid-structure simulations performed either with a simple 1D structure model or with shells in large displacements.
