Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) is the interaction of a fluid flow with a solid structure.
It is crucial for understanding the dynamic behavior of structures exposed to fluid forces such as.
- Long-span bridges in strong winds
- The aeroelastic behavior of wings
- Structures subjected to waves
- Biomedical devices such as heart valves
Experimental analysis allows researchers to capture real-world data to validate simulation models and enhance predictions of structural responses to flow-induced loads.
We offer Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) solutions combining Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) for the fluid flow field measurements and Digital Image Correlation (DIC) for the structural deformation measurements.
