Space-time FSI modeling and dynamical analysis of ringsail parachute clusters

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Computer modeling of ringsail parachute clusters involves fluid-structure interaction (FSI) between the parachute canopy and the air, geometric complexities created by the construction of the parachute from "rings" and "sails" with hundreds of gaps and slits, and the contact between the parachutes. The Team for Advanced Flow Simulation and Modeling (T*AFSM) has successfully addressed the computational challenges related to the FSI and geometric complexities, and recently started addressing the challenges related to the contact between the parachutes of a cluster. This is being accomplished with the Stabilized Space-Time FSI technique, which was developed and improved over the years by the T*AFSM and serves as the core numerical technology, and the special techniques developed by the T*AFSM to deal with the geometric complexities and the contact between parachutes. We present the results obtained with the FSI computation of parachute clusters and the related dynamical analysis.
