In this work, a coupling of vortex methods with penalization methods is proposed in order to accurately and easily handle solid-fluid-porous media. This immersed boundary approach indeed maintains the efficiency and the robustness of vortex methods and allows to model the three different media without prescribing any boundary condition. In this paper, we propose an application of this immersed boundary method to passive flow control around a semi-circular cylinder, realized adding a porous sheath on the obstacle surface in order to smooth the flow dynamics.
