Gallery of Fluid Motion

Yue, Nick, and I are working on making a submission for the Gallery of Fluid Motion, a part of the upcoming meeting of APS Division of Fluid Dynamics. The name is taken after the famous album of photographs of fluid flow visualization collected and compiled by Milton van Dyke. We thought the case of many … More Gallery of Fluid Motion

Simulating Fluid–Structure Interactions

Fluid-structure interactions (FSI) are ubiquitous in nature, laboratory, and industrial setting. For example, animal locomotion, fluid flowing through porous media, or cheese being stirred and pumped through a cheese making machine. However, FSI problems are challenging to solve analytically or simulate numerically, due to their nonlinear, multi-physics nature. In particular, it is difficult to reconcile … More Simulating Fluid–Structure Interactions
