Modeling of cavitation phenomena requires the coupling of models for ﬂuid and solid materials. For this purpose we employ a strategy based on the solution of coupled Riemann problems that has been originally developed for the coupling of two ﬂuids. The coupling strategy has been established and validated in . In this work we include a timestepping algorithm which allows for diﬀerent timesteps in ﬂuid and solid solvers. Furthermore, we perform numerical experiments simulating the interface between a plastic or steel structure and air.
