In this lead paper of the special issue, we provide some comments on challenges and directions in computational fluid-structure interaction (FSI). We briefly discuss the significance of computational FSI methods, their components, moving-mesh and nonmoving-mesh methods, mesh moving and remeshing concepts, and FSI coupling techniques.
