The steps undertaken for a high-order accurate simulation of fluid-structure interaction problems are presented. Specifically, an interface is designed to couple a parallel spectral/hp element fluid solver NekTar with the hp-FEM solid solver StressCheck. The objective is to perform DNS of flows past wings using realistic representation of flows and structures. The coupling strategy is presented in the context of two well documented example problems - the AGARD wing (Yates et. al) and a square panel in flow (Gordnier and Visbal).
