Gallery of Fluid Motion

Update: the video is now on YouTube. Even though we didn’t win the contest, making this video helped us realize how important visualization is in science communication! 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. … 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
