Course description

Think of a flag moving in the wind or blood flowing in arteries in order to get an idea off what fluid-structure-interaction (FSI) phenomena are. They are characterized by an interplay between deforming structure and a surrounding fluid. On the one hand, the structure deforms as a result of the load exerted by the flow field. On the other hand, this deformation affects the flow field so that the load on the structure changes. For the modeling and simulation of FSI phenomena, neither the fluid nor the solid can be viewed separately.
