We develop a finite element scheme to approximate the dynamics of two and three dimensional fluidic membranes in Navier–Stokes flow. Local inextensibility of the membrane is ensured by solving a tangential Navier–Stokes equation, taking surface viscosity effects of Boussinesq–Scriven type into account. In our approach the bulk and surface degrees of freedom are discretized independently, which ...
