In this talk, a few FSI problems will be studied with both computational and analytical methods. In particular, parametric instabilities will be studied with Bolotin’s Approach and Monodromy Matrix. Physical insights will be derived from the instability diagram and the transition points for buckling and flutter instabilities. Some suppression mechanisms are also presented for the reduction of flow-induced vibrations.
Dr. Sheldon (Xiaodong) Wang is a Professor in McCoy School of Engineering, College of Science and Mathematics at Midwestern State University. He received his B.S. in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (1988), and his M.S. in Ocean Engineering (1993) and Ph.D. in Applied Mechanics (1995) from MIT.
