GK Batchelor Lecture

The interaction of flowing fluids with bodies—sometimes compliant, sometimes active, sometimes multiple—constitutes a class of beautiful dynamic boundary problems that are central to biology and engineering. Examples range from how flexible structures like flags and leaves interact with high-speed flows to how organisms locomote and interact in fluids. I will discuss several interesting cases, emphasizing how they can be formulated mathematically to yield models tractable for analysis or simulation, and how this work has combined with experimental studies.

This talk is part of the Fluid Mechanics (DAMTP) series.
