FSI Workshop 2018

Welcome to FSI Workshop 2018 in Canberra



FSI Workshop in Canberra, 7-9 May, 2018

Event: 3-Day invited workshop on Fluid-Structure Interaction

Dates: Monday 7 May-Wednesday 9 May, 2018

Location: UNSW Canberra, Australia

Contacts: Prof Andrew Neely (High speed FSI), Dr Fangbao Tian (Low speed FSI, International) and A/Prof John Young (Low speed FSI, Domestic)

The Objectives:

The invited workshop will bring together leading and active exponents of FSI research. While this research has potential application in quite diverse flow regimes, many of the analytical and numerical modelling methods and experimental diagnostics are common between them. Thus, a targeted workshop that brings together the leading FSI experts in both experimental methods and numerical simulations will help to guide and focus future work in this area and maximize its success.

The Workshop:

The workshop will include a number of presentations, workshops, and social events including an excursion in the local Canberra area. The workshop will encompass research across a number of subfields of FSI. These areas will include:

  • High-speed FSI (hypersonic and supersonic)
  • Biomimetic FSI (micro UAVs & UUVs, insects and birds, flapping wing propulsion, power generation)
  • Biomedical FSI (blood flow, respiratory, microorganisms)

Organising Committee: A Neely, J Young, F Tian, J Lai
