Human Phonation

• Characterization of fluid-structure interaction along the human larynx using ADINA.
• Developed a one-dimensional FSI plugin in FORTRAN for characterization of stress in vocal fold tissue during speech.


Shock Tube Gasdynamics

• Characterization of shock attenuation effects during shock-tube experiments of jet and rocket fuel combustion (OpenFOAM).
• Helped develop a one-dimensional gasdynamics (compressible CFD + chemical kinetics) FORTRAN code as a tool for design of shock tube experiments.


Wind-turbine Blade Load

Characterization of blade wind load in OpenFOAM to validate reduced-order multi-physics models used for reliability of wind turbines.
