Fluid-Structure Interactions: Research in the Courant Institute's Applied Mathematics Laboratory



The Applied Mathematics Laboratory is a research laboratory within the Mathematics Department of the Courant Institute. It was established to carry out physical experiments, modeling, and associated numerical studies in a variety of problems of interest to Courant faculty, postdocs, and graduate and undergraduate students. Most of the research to date has involved fluid mechanics, and we focus in this paper on the work that relates to the interaction of fluids with rigid, movable, or flexible bodies. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
