  • Space–Time Slip Interface and Topology Change (ST-SI-TC) method
    The ST-SI-TC method is based on ST-SI and ST-TC methods combined. The ST-SI-TC method we introduce here integrates the ST-SI and ST-TC methods in the ST-VMS framework. It enables accurate flow analysis when we have a spinning solid surface that is in contact with a solid surface. See more details .
  • Thermo-fluid analysis and heat conduction analysis of a disk brake
    We first do the thermo-fluid analysis of the flow around the disk brake for a finite set of rotor speeds, and then, with the heat transfer coefficient coming from the thermo-fluid analysis, do the heat conduction analysis of the rotor. We do this from the start of the breaking until the rotor spinning stops. See more ...
  • Thermo-fluid analysis of a ground vehicle and its tires
    Thermo-fluid analysis of a truck under road condition. In this thermo-fluid analysis, we use a road-surface temperature higher than the free-stream temperature, and a tire-surface temperature that is even higher. We also include in the analysis the heat from the engine and exhaust system, with a reasonably realistic representation of the rate by which that heat ...
  • Textbook on computational FSI authored by Takizawa has been translated to Japanese
    Wiley textbook on computational FSI, authored by Takizawa has been translated to Japanese by Morikita Publishing Company. See here for more details.
  • Flapping-wing aerodynamics with wing clapping
    Flapping-wing aerodynamics of an MAV with wing clapping. In the analysis, the wings are brought into an actual contact when they clap. See more details .
  • Fluid mechanics computation of heart valve
    We present computation for an aortic valve with coronary arteries. The computation demonstrates that the ST-TC method can bring interface-tracking accuracy to fluid mechanics of heart valve, and can do that with computational practicality. See more details .
  • Two-Parachute Cluster
    Cluster of the Orion Spacecraft main parachutes. We are using FSI modeling to evaluate the performance of two-parachute clusters. We found that the location of the parachute-payload connection point is an important factor in cluster dynamics. (T*AFSM)
