A Lagrangian method is developed to approximate the solution on the freshly cleared cells occurring in the simulation of moving objects using immersed boundary method. The method is validated on a stationary/moving cylinder. The main focus is on the study of evolution of leading edge vortex around a rapidly pitching flat plate and its effect on the lift and drag coefficients at a set of angles of attack and Reynolds numbers.
