Language The symposium will be conducted in English

Scope RIAM (Research Institute for Applied Mechanics) is one of the inter-university "Joint-use Institutes" of Japan. This symposium, which was proposed by Prof. M. Kashiwagi of Osaka University, is one of joint-research activities supported by RIAM. The purpose of the symposium is to provide a chance to discuss in detail and exchange know-how on the research of fluid-structure interaction(FSI) problems. The size of this symposium is rather small and informal, and younger researchers are highly encouraged to participate. Due to application, the symposium can support the travel expenses for some of the speakers.

The main topics of concern in the symposium are such as:

  • Theoretical and numerical analysis of FSI problem
  • Experimental investigation of FSI problem
