Abstract: This paper presents the formulation, implementation and evaluation of an enhanced matrix free edge-based finite volume approach to model the mechanics of solids undergoing large non-linear deformations. The developed technology is evaluated via application to a number of test-cases. As will be demonstrated, the finite volume approach exhibits distinct advantages over the Q4 finite element formulation. This provides an alternative approach to the analysis of solid mechanics and allows for the possibility of using a single discretisation strategy for both the fluid and structural domain and solving the resulting set of equations using a single solution method.
