    Talk Title: The Fluid Mechanics of Hypersonic Fluid-Structure Interactions

    Abstract: The interaction of high-speed aerodynamics with thermo-mechanically compliant structures is a critical design consideration for single-use and reusable hypersonic vehicles. Historical techniques for predicting fluid-thermal-structure interaction (FTSI) are insufficient for envisioned hypersonic flight systems, leading to a resurgent effort towards understanding, modeling, and predicting FTSI-coupled systems. In this talk, we will present the impact of FTSI on two fundamental scenarios -- boundary layer transition and shock-boundary layer interaction -- informed using a combination of stability analyses and direct numerical simulation techniques. In each scenario, focus will be given to the fluid mechanics involved in the fluid-structure coupling. Supporting details on the relevant theoretical and numerical details required for accurate prediction will also be discussed.

    Biography: Daniel J. Bodony is the Blue Waters Professor, Donald Biggar Willett Faculty Scholar and Associate Head for Graduate Programs in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois. He received his Ph.D. in Aeronautics & Astronautics from Stanford University in 2005. After working at the NASA Ames/Stanford Center for Turbulence Research he joined the University of Illinois in late 2006 as an assistant professor. He received an NSF CAREER award in 2012 in Fluid Dynamics, is an Associate Fellow of the AIAA, and received the University of Illinois' Promotion with Distinction Award in 2020
