About this book

This is the first book presenting dynamic responses and failure of polymer composite structures as they interact with internal and/or external fluid media. It summarizes authoritative research carried out by the author in the past decade on various aspects of Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) to present important effects of FSI on composite structures. The topics include impact loading on composite structures with air-back, water-back, or containing water; FSI effects on frequencies, mode shapes, and modal curvatures; cyclic loading for fatigue failure with FSI; coupling of independent composite structures by fluid media; and moving composite structures in water. Numerical techniques for FSI are also presented. Research was conducted both experimentally and numerically to complement each other. The book offers a timely, comprehensive information to fluid-structure interaction of composite structures for students, researchers or practicing engineers.


About the authors

Young Kwon is Distinguished Professor of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department of the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California, USA.  He also serves as Director of the Materials Research Center at NPS and was the Chair of the department. Previously, he was also Professor and Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Energy Processes of Southern Illinois University Carbondale (SIUC). He received his Ph.D. degree from Rice University, and B.S. degree from Seoul National University, all in mechanical engineering.  Before joining NPS, he was Assistant Professor at the University of Missouri-Rolla.  His research interests are multiscale, multiphysics and multidisciplinary problems in engineering and sciences. He wrote multiple books, Finite Element Method using MATLAB which was translated into Greek, Multiscale and Multiphysics Modeling: Techniques and Applications, and Composite Structures for Fluid-Structure Interaction. He edited a book titled Multiscale Modeling and Simulation of Composite Materials and Structures. He received many awards including the Cedric K. Ferguson Medal, Menneken Awards, Excellent Research Award from American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicines, Outstanding Instruction and Research Awards, ASME Dedicated Service Award, ASME PVPD Outstanding Service Award, ASME Board of Governors Award, ASME PVP Medal, National Dean's List, etc. He is a fellow of ASME. He serves as Technical Editor for ASME Transactional, Journal of Pressure Vessel Technology, as well as Multiscale and Multidisciplinary Modeling, Experiments and Design published by Springer Nature.  He severed as the ASME PVP Division Chair.
