Laboratory for Fluid-Structure Interactions Studies directed by Dr. Banafsheh Seyed-Aghazadeh


FSI has significant implications for a number of physical systems, from aeolian harps to power transmission lines, towing cables, undersea pipelines, drilling risers and mooring lines used to stabilize offshore floating platforms. At FSI lab, Dr. Banafsheh Seyed-Aghazadeh research group works on designing flow-induced vibration-based energy harvesters from external sources available in the environment, such as wind or marine currents. Her research group also works on investigating potentials of combining fundamentals of flow-induced vibration with machine learning algorithms, to lay the foundation for future research projects in the area of biomimetic fluidic sensor design with applications in ocean sensing. Such projects can directly advance the UMass Dartmouth’s role in building the blue economy through initiation of innovative and collaborative research projects at SouthCoast of Massachusetts.

Ling Lab directed by Dr. Hangjian Ling

The lab is broadly interested in fluid dynamic problems at the interface of material, biological, and environmental sciences, developing novel optical measurement techniques to characterize the fluid flows and animal movements. Their research aims to understand the fundamental flow physics and animal behavioral rules, and harness them to solve critical energy and environmental issues in our society.
