The TAFSM has recently created the Institute for Frontier Fluid-Structure Interaction Analysis in Green Computing Systems Research Organization at Waseda.
The institute will strengthen TAFSM’s position in innovating powerful computational analysis methods and bringing solution to a wide-range of real-world problems that no one else, or very few, in the world can solve.
The research collaboration between Kenji Takizawa and Tayfun Tezduyar was highlighted by Waseda University in Nature Index 2019 Japan.
The article describes how the collaboration started, what its objectives are, and how it was strengthened by the joint appointment of Tezduyar as a Waseda Professor. It is great coincidence that the research collaboration highlighted started almost ...
Frontiers in Computational Fluid-Structure Interaction and Flow Simulation: Research from Lead Investigators under Forty – 2018, published by Springer (https://www.springer.com/us/book/9783319964683), includes chapters contributed by Takizawa, Kuraishi, and Otoguro. The book, dedicated to Yuri Bazilevs and Kenji Takizawa in celebration of their 40th birthday, was edited by Tayfun Tezduyar, and we all thank him for promoting ...

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.

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.

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 ...
