Ben’s paper, Stabilization approaches for the hyperelastic immersed boundary method for problems of large-deformation incompressible elasticity, is now available on the arXiv. We propose a simple stabilization that resembles approaches from nearly incompressible solid mechanics to improve the volume conservation of the immersed boundary method, as demonstrated by its performance in widely used benchmark problems of incompressible hyperelasticity adapted from the solid mechanics literature.
