Fluid Structure Interaction 2011

6th International Conference on Fluid Structure Interaction
9 - 11 May 2011, Orlando, USA


University of Central Florida, USA
Wessex Institute of Technology


Fluid Structure Interaction 2011 is the sixth conference in this successful series, dedicated now to the memory of its originator, the late Professor Subrata Chakrabarti. The series provides a forum for the presentation of new ideas and the latest work in the specialised field of fluid structure interaction.

The principal aim of this conference is to promote international exchange of information and knowledge of fluid structure interaction problems, giving experts from different application fields the opportunity to interact with
one another and to provide valuable cross breeding of ideas and techniques.

The conference will encompass a wide range of topics within this area ranging from different types of fluids, such as; wind, current, biofluids and ocean waves to different types of structures; tall buildings, ocean structures, cables, towers, bridges, risers and others. New research for the advancement of interaction problems will be the main focus of the conference. Papers with new applications to real world problems will be particularly welcome. The basic mathematical formulations of fluid structure interaction and their numerical simulation will also be discussed, as well as their physical modelling. Papers are sought in areas such as advanced analytical techniques, computer and experimental modelling, new applications and verification of interaction.

The conference first started in Halkidiki, Greece, in 2001; followed by one in Cadiz, Spain, in 2003; another in La Coruña, Spain, in 2005; the New Forest, UK, in 2007 and the last in Crete in 2009.
