Mini course on Fluid-Structure Interaction by Prof. Alfio Quarteroni (EPFL, Lausanne)


Wednesday, 24 September, 2014 - 09:00 to Saturday, 25 October, 2014 - 18:30

Where: SISSA, main building, room A-133 and A-134

A mini course on Fluid-Structure Interaction will be given in the framework of AMMA and mathLab activities by Prof. Alfio Quarteroni (EPFL, Lausanne) on September 24 and 25, 2014.

The mini course is organized as it follows:

  • Part I - Motivations and fundamentals of Domain Decomposition (DD) Methods: Wednesday 24 September 2014, 15:00-17:00, room A-133.
  • Part II - Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) Problems and Solution Algorithms: Thursday 25 September 2014, 10:30-12:30, room A-134.
  • Part III - Application of DD-FSI Paradigms to Multiphysics Modeling: Thursday 25 September 2014, 14:30-16:30, room A-133.
  • Fluid-structure interaction is a very interesting multi-physics and mathematical problem, dealing with the coupling of fluid dynamic effects (velocity, pressure of a fluid) with a structural component subject to stress and deformation.
  • Fluid-structure interaction is studied in several fields: biomedicine (interaction of blood with arterial vessels), applied biology (motility), aeronautical, naval, structural and mechanical engineering: from off-shore structures to sport applications (sails, swimmers, ...).

The mathematical foundations and several numerical methodologies (with recent advances) to face these problems will be presented.
