USACM CFD/FSI Virtual Seminar

Space–Time Computational Analysis:
From Inception to New Generations

Space–Time VMS (ST-VMS) method and its predecessor ST-SUPS have a good track record in computational analysis of complex FSI and moving boundaries and interfaces (MBI). Challenging problems with successful analysis range from spacecraft parachutes to flapping-wing aerodynamics of an actual locust, from ventriclevalve-aorta flow to tire-aerodynamics with actual tire geometry, road contact and tire deformation. When an FSI or MBI problem requires high-resolution representation of boundary layers, methods where the mesh moves to follow the fluid–solid interface meet that requirement. Moving-mesh methods have been practical in more classes of complex problems than commonly thought of. With a number of complementary methods, the ST methods can now do even more. This is an overview of how the ST methods started and how they evolved over the years. It is joint work with Kenji Takizawa, Waseda


Tezduyar received his PhD degree from Caltech in 1982. He holds a 1986 Presidential Young Investigator Award. He received the computational mechanics award of the Japan Soc of Mech Eng, USACM, IACM, Argentine Assoc for Comp Mech, Japan Assoc for Comp Mech, and Asian Pacific Assoc for Comp Mech.
