Current research subjects
Numerical Simulation of turbulence-structure interaction  Fluid-Structure Interaction, Numerical Simulation, Finite DIfference Method, Immersed Boundary Method  2012/11/01-Present  The fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems, especially in the case of turbulent flow, are of great importance for not only the design of aircrafts and high-speed trains but the evaluation of the large-scale structures such as the suspension bridge. Recently, the quite-large scale FSI problem which is too large to calculate by supercomputer is going to be able to calculate due to the development of the high-performance computation (HPC) facilities. The aim of the research topic is to develop the numerical scheme of the FSI problems in turbulent flow with vortex release and/or oscillation of structures. 
Development of the accurate numerical schemes for compressible turbulent flow  2013/10/01-Present  The aim of the research topic is to deal with the discontinuity of physical quantities such as density, pressure, etc. on the accurate numerical schemes. 
Investigation of the flow around an object with unsteady motion  Towing Wind Tunnel, Numerical Simulation, Fluid-Structure Interaction  2015/04/01-Present  In this topic, the interaction between the flow patterns of the wake of an accelerating/decelerating object and hydrodynamic forces such as the drag and lift would be investigated by experimental and numerical studies. 
Development of the Numerical Procedure of Fluid-Structure Interaction Suitable for the Swimming Robot  Fluid-Structure Interaction, Numerical Simulation Method, Swimming Robot, the Immersed Boundary Method  2016/06/01-2017/03/31   本研究は,遊泳ロボット開発に適したハイブリッド流体・構造連成シミュレーション法の構築を目的とする.  従来,遊泳ロボット開発のためのシミュレーションには商用ソフトウェアによる有限要素解析が用いられているが,遊泳ロボットには比較的遅い流れの中を高速に運動するという特徴があるため,従来のソフトウェアではロボットの運動時間スケールと流体現象の特徴的な時間スケールとの間のギャップが大きくなり,解析時間が長大となっていた.本研究では時間スケールマッチング手法により,スケールの異なるロボット運動と流体運動を連結するための新たな時間進行スキーム法の構築を目指す. 本研究は,電気通信大学「研究活性化支援システム・研究プロジェクト若手研究支援」による補助を受けている. 
Development of drag reduction devices for a "bluff" body in fluid dynamics  Low energy consumption, Drag reduction, Flow control  2017/04/01-2018/03/31  The goal of this research topic is to decrease energy consumption in the field of freight transportation. The objective of this study is to develop drag reduction devices that are installed to a bluff body such as a rectangular parallelepiped of which the shape is often found in freight vans. This project is supported by JKA. 
Development of the Numerical Procedure of Fluid-Structure Interaction Suitable for the Swimming Robot  Fluid-Structure Interaction, Numerical Simulation Method, Swimming Robot, the Immersed Boundary Method  2017/04/01-Present   本研究は,遊泳ロボット開発に適したハイブリッド流体・構造連成シミュレーション法の構築を目的とする.  従来,遊泳ロボット開発のためのシミュレーションには商用ソフトウェアによる有限要素解析が用いられているが,遊泳ロボットには比較的遅い流れの中を高速に運動するという特徴があるため,従来のソフトウェアではロボットの運動時間スケールと流体現象の特徴的な時間スケールとの間のギャップが大きくなり,解析時間が長大となっていた.本研究では時間スケールマッチング手法により,スケールの異なるロボット運動と流体運動を連結するための新たな時間進行スキーム法の構築を目指す.
