Abstract
The Immersed Boundary Method is a versatile tool for the investigation of
flow-structure interaction. In a large number of applications, the immersed
boundaries or structures are very stiff and strong tangential forces on these
interfaces induce a well-known, severe time-step restriction for explicit dis-
cretizations. This excessive stability constraint can be removed with fully
implicit or suitable semi-implicit schemes but at a seemingly prohibitive com-
putational cost. While economical alternatives have been proposed recently
for some special cases, there is a practical need for a computationally effi-
cient approach that can be applied more broadly. In this context, we revisit
a robust semi-implicit discretization introduced by Peskin in the late 70's
