In the solution of Fluid-Structure Interaction problems, partitioned procedures are modular algorithms that involve separate fluid and structure solvers, that interact, in an iterative framework, through the exchange of suitable transmission conditions at the FS interface. In this work we study, using Fourier analysis, the convergence of partitioned algorithms based on Robin transmission conditions. We derive, for different models of the fluid and the structure, a frequency dependent reduction

Two-dimensional numerical results are also reported, which highlight the effectiveness of the optimization procedure. Problem setting Let us consider a computational domain Ω t ⊂ R d (d=2, 3, being the space dimension). This domain is divided into a sub-domain Ω t s occupied by an elastic structure and its complement Ω t f occupied by the fluid. The fluid-structure
