Interfacial Flows and Fluid-Structure Interaction Laboratory @IIT Bombay




Our lab is currently investigating two broad areas, namely Fluid-Structure Interaction and interfacial flows. The sub-topics (included but not limited to) in these areas are also listed below.
We use state-of-the-art computational and experimental techniques for our research.
  • Fluid-structure interaction (FSI)
    • Computational techniques in FSI
    • Immersed boundary method
    • Vortex Induced Vibration
    • Flapping foils
    • Thermal augmentation via FSI
  • Droplets and interfaces
    • Droplet impact and evaporation on solid surfaces
    • Experimental techniques in interfaces
    • Reduced order modeling, Finite element modeling
    • Droplet deposition on textured surfaces, Bouncing droplets
    • Coffee-ring problem
    • Moving contact line problem
    • Droplet breakup in microfluidic circuits
