Fundamentals of fluid-structure interactions, fluid-elastic instabilities (buckling, flutter, galloping) and their engineering applications. Possible domains of applications are civil engineering, aerospace engineering, ocean engineering, biomechanics, and soft robotics. Examples include tall bridges, aircraft wing, parachutes, solid rocket motor, turbomachinery, offshore platform, subsea pipelines, paper printing, MEMS mircochannels, blood flow in arteries, and heart valves. The fish swimming mechanics with be studied to inspire novel efficient propulsion mechanisms for soft robotics applications.
