Innledning
Fluidstructure interactions (FSI) are critical considerations in the design and understanding of various systems mechanical engineers will work with, e.g.,wind turbines, ship hulls, engines, or bridges.
The course will cover the fundamental theory of fluidstructure interactions including viscous flow, turbulent flow, flow separation, bluffbody aerodynamics, unsteady flow, timefrequency analysis and flow control techniques..
Students will learn to solve relevant realworld FSI problems.
Anbefalte forkunnskaper
The students should have completed the courses om andvanced engineering mathematics and continuum mechanis.
Læringsutbytte
Knowledge:
The candidate

can explain the governing equations of fluid dynamics

can explain the relevant phenomena related to FSI problems such as turbulence, separation, vortex shedding

can explain the physics behind standard fluidstructure interaction problems such as flowinduced vibrations and the aerodynamics of flapping wings

can explain stateofthe art computational and expermimental tools relevent for FSI problems such as wind turbines
Skills:
The candidate

can identify the building blocks constituting a realworld FSI problem to predict possible flowinduced vibrations and propse flow control strategies to prevent them

can apply stateoftheart FSI tools to solve industrially relevant FSI problems.
General Competence:
The candidate

can perform independent research and document the results in the form of a report, following the ethical protocols of research

can communicate with peers on how computer simulations and experiments of FSI problems (such as wind farms) are built from first principles

can critically evaluate results from simulations and experiments
