Solid modeling of physiological geometries Soft tissues such as cartilage and ligaments play an important role in the function of the human musculoskeleton In order to analyze these components meshes of the corresponding anatomical regions have to be created To create the meshes 3D measurements have to be taken and geometric models created augmented with additional information such as loading and muscle forces and passed to the meshing stage These geometric models can be explicitly defined using current solid modeling engines such as Parasolid or by discrete implicit representations Researchers are collaborating with the Orthopedic Research Laboratory at Columbia University A model of a tissue in a human knee Contact analysis of biphasic tissues Researchers primary interest is in the response of articular cartilage to the loads imposed by articulating a joint The biphasic theory is being used to provide the mathematical description of this response That theory models soft tissues as a binary mixture of an incompressible elastic solid and an incompressible inviscid fluid Boundary conditions for interfaces between biphasic materials are written for a surface between two domains Researchers assume frictionless contact and arrive at four contact continuity relations continuity of pressure normal component of elastic solid traction normal solid velocity and normal relative fluid flow Note that fluid velocity is not required to be continuous for biphasic continua in contact The diagram represents the geometric description of an axisymmetric model of the gleno humeral joint of the shoulder the finite element mesh is given in the lower portion of the figure Both the glenoid and humeral head cartilage are treated as transversely isotropic with stiffening fibers tangent to the tissue surface Click to enlarge Researchers use the Galerkin weighted residual method to generate finite element equations For the contact problem a weighted residual is constructed from the

with emphasis on fluid dynamics Turbulence theory simulation and modeling Parallel computing The motivation of Ken s research is to provide engineers with a better predictive capability for fluid dynamics problems especially those where turbulence plays an non negligible role To this end his research at the most applied level seeks to develop simple models which describe the net effect or average of the turbulence upon the mean flow equations These models when combined with a fully unstructured grid finite element method allow engineers to model arbitrarily complex flow problems Unfortunately these models are not yet able to describe all turbulent flows Therefore other forms of simulating turbulence are also pursued These forms are 1 Large Eddy Simulation LES where the large scale motions of the turbulence are resolved in the computation leaving only the fine scale motions to be modeled 2 Direct Numerical Simulation DNS where all of the turbulent motions are resolved in the computational model These alternate forms are useful both to develop a more basic understanding of the theory of turbulence and to help improve the averaged models used by engineers Click here to view velocity contours on four planes parallel to the wing and one plane normal to the wing from a LES 35k To see an animation colorful one of this flow click one or more of the following animations here 8 9MB here 11 6MB long time interval here 15 5MB shorter time more frequent sampling smoother here a single frame image of the animation Click here to view vorticity isosurfaces from and LES of turbulent flow over a cavity 1 4MB might want to wait until night or for a quick view try this one which is a much smaller file but is more fuzzy 44k If you have a VERY fast
