Bodies interacting with and through fluids
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Nigel Peake.
GK Batchelor Lecture
The interaction of flowing fluids with bodies—sometimes compliant, sometimes active, sometimes multiple—constitutes a class of beautiful dynamic boundary problems that are central to biology and engineering. Examples range from how flexible structures like flags and leaves interact with high-speed flows to how organisms locomote and interact in fluids. I will discuss several interesting cases, emphasizing how they can be formulated mathematically to yield models tractable for analysis or simulation, and how this work has combined with experimental studies.
