Advanced fluid-structure interaction techniques for modeling ringsail parachutes
The Team for Advanced Flow Simulation and Modeling (T☆FSM) at Rice University specializes in developing fluid-structure interaction (FSI) modeling techniques for several classes of challenging problems including ...
Simulation of nonlinear performance of a top fuel dragster race car
In order to analyze and increase the performance of a top fuel dragster, a dynamic model of the car was developed in this thesis. The drag racing car is moving mainly in a rectilinear/one dimensional mode, nevertheless, a ...
A scattered data approximation tool to map carbon nanotube dispersion to the processing parameters in polymer nanocomposites
The relationship of nanocomposite dispersion was studied with the variation of dispersion techniques and other processing parameters. Examining all permutations of the various factors in the laboratory is a challenging ...
