About the Project

This project aims to develop and implement parallel fluid-structure interaction algorithms including interfaced-fitted methods [1] and two-mesh methods [2], based upon FreeFem++ and PETSc, with application to modelling and simulation of aortic valve interacting with surrounding fluids and tissues; and large-scale simulation of biological swimmers (such as C. elegans) swimming in viscous fluids.

For more details, please contact Dr. Yongxing Wang (scsywan or Prof. Peter Jimack ([Email Address Removed])
