About the Organiser

The Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur is a public institution established by the government of India in 1951. It is the first of the IITs to be established and is recognised as an Institute of National Importance by the Government of India.

Introduction to Course

Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) is ubiquitous in nature and has significant industrial applications. In general, above a critical Reynolds number (Re) flow, the wake regime downstream of the structure becomes unsteady that contains alternating shedding vortices and exerts fluctuating aerodynamic forces on the structure through periodic pressure fluctuations. The mode of vortex shedding is a function of the rigidity of the structure material and it can be either beneficial or detrimental depending upon the type of wake regime interaction.

In order to accurately describe the FSI problems, an accurate numerical solver and experimental technique must be adopted. In this course, we will discuss various FSI problems in the incompressible regime for both rigid and elastic materials. We will demonstrate the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solver development for accurate simulation of FSI problems. Some of the experimental techniques for flow visualization and measurements for FSI problems will also be discussed.
