Thecourse will give an overview of the phenomena that govern fluid-structureinteraction, as well as numerical methods that can be used to predict them. Awide range of phenomena, ranging from aeroelasticity to weapon fragmentation,will be covered.

Key Topics
  • FSI: Introduction (why, basic phenomena, …)
  • PDEs and character of the solutions: structure/fluid/thermal
  • Numerical methods I, II
  • Solution of the complete system
  • Examples
  • Current research topics/issues

Who Should Attend

Thiscourse should be attractive to all those who need to evaluate complex designswithin a multidisciplinary framework. This comprises the following categories:designs governed by aeroelastic or aerothermoelastic phenomena (buffeting,flutter, galloping, aerodynamic heating, etc.), rapid energy transfer (weaponfragmentation, blast-structure interaction), and many others.
