In this paper, the combination of the variational multiscale method with appropriate stabilization parameters is proposed to handle the so-called small time step instability in the finite element analysis of the fluid part in fluid-structure interaction problems in which a high-frequency vibrating structure interacts with an incompressible fluid. Such a situation is common in many microfluid manipulating devices. The capability of the employed approach has been demonstrated through finite element simulation of a benchmark example and two different micropumps.
