Math models to aid voice disorders

Jan. 31, 2014—(iStock) Dynamic interactions between biological structures – such as insect wings, fish fins, heart valves and human vocal folds – and the environment (air/liquid) around them are critical for their physiological functions. Computational modeling of fluid-structure interaction (FSI) for biological systems is challenging and has not been extensively explored. Haoxiang Luo,assistant professor of mechanical engineering;...
