Numerical Models in Fluid-Structure Interaction.
Numerical models in fluid-structure interaction.
Chakrabarti, S. K.
Advances in fluid mechanics; v.42
Researchers from the Americas, Europe, and Asia describe numerical computation techniques within the specialized area of fluid mechanics relating to the effects of fluid on structures, particularly as applied to offshore structures. Their topics include two-dimensional nonlinear numerical wave tanks, using the finite element method on free surface flow, cylinders in steady and oscillatory flow, computing wave effects using the panel method, the numerical computation of riser dynamics, a hybrid numerical method for wave-multi-body interaction, hydro-elastic interaction, and the coupled analysis of offshore floating systems. Readers are assumed to be researchers or designers. There is no index. The US office of WIT Press is Computational Mechanics.
