Research Centre for Fluid-Structure Interaction (RCFSI)

Through its considerable multidisciplinary expertise, the RCFSI aims to address some grand challenges associated with fluid-structure interaction in bio-mechanics, aeronautical, civil and marine engineering.

In the process of fluid-structure interaction (FSI), the fluid action can cause significant deformation and stresses in a structure. As that structure deforms, it changes the fluid flow, which in turn alters the structural deformation. Thus, understanding of the associated fundamentals and physics of the FSI is critical important within the engineering discipline.

About the RCFSI

Our vision

The RCFSI aim to become an internationally-recognised research unit, carrying out research on FSI in marine, aeronautical and civil engineering in collaboration with world leading researchers in the areas.

Potential PhD projects

  • Multi-scale multi-model simulations of FSI in marine engineering (Prof Ma and Dr Yan)
    This is an area which can cover many projects. In terms of methodology, the numerical methods based on fully nonlinear potential theory, full viscous theory and/or hybrid models may be developed for simulating nonlinear FSI in marine engineering. In terms of applications, the simulations may be applied to platforms/structures for oil/gas, for offshore wind energy system and for wave energy. In terms of physics, the simulations may be employed to study the nature of VIV, the wave impact on the structures, turbulent effects on wave loading, aeration effects on structural responses and so on.
  • Oil spilling from damaged oil tankers subjected to high sea state (Dr Yan)
    This area is an extension of the multi-scale multi-model simulation of FSI in marine engineering, but is more specifically an environmental issue. It requires to build a hybrid model coupling the large-scale wave modelling using potential flow theory with small-scale FSI near the damaged oil tanker using multi-phase VOF model. It is expected to advance our understanding on the dynamic oil spilling process and its interaction with tank motions and marine environment.
  • Free vibration of single and multiple-walled carbon nano-tubes (Prof Banerjee)
  • Response of functionally graded structures to deterministic and random loads (Prof Banerjee)
  • Dynamic stiffness formulation for a new generation of non-standard structural elements (Prof Banerjee)
  • Static and dynamic properties of FRP reinforced concrete structures (Dr Feng and Prof Banerjee)
  • Experimental tests on vortex induced vibration (VIV) (Dr. Cheung)
  • Study on long span floors and particularly on the ultra slim floor beam (Prof. D’Mello)
  • Wind-tall building interaction (Dr. Fu)
  • CFD modelling the real life fire development inside tall buildings (Dr. Fu)
