Aerospace Engineering Prof. Jonathan Freund organized and chaired a symposium on “Directions in Computational Flow Physics” honoring Prof. Parviz Moin of Stanford for his leadership and groundbreaking simulation-based investigations of flow physics, particularly turbulence.
This symposium generated a recent special section of the November issue of Physics of Fluids, a journal of the American Institute of Physics. Freund, also a professor of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering, edited the section.
Papers by authors including Prof. Philippe H. Geubelle and Associate Prof. Daniel J. Bodony are featured in this section. Bodony and Geubelle were joined by Christopher M. Ostoich, a computational science and engineering graduate student, in the paper, “Interaction of a Mach 2.25 Turbulent Boundary Layer with a Fluttering Panel Using Direct Numerical Simulation.”
The work investigates the interaction between a thin metallic panel and the boundary layer using a direct numerical approach for coupled fluid-structure problems.
