Abstract : The objective of this project it to study numerical algorithms and develop a computational platform for the study of the dynamic system involving highly complex geometric interface immersed in the continuum medium. The success of the proposed research will have direct impact on many field operations of the Army and enhance the understanding of some very important equipments which the Army employs while performing its combat or humanitarian missions. These equipments include the parachute system for both personnel and cargo delivery, the micro air vehicle system for reconnaissance and remote sensing in hazardous environment, and the deceleration system for the re-entry vehicle in space missions. In the long range, we hope that the intellectual properties invented under this proposal will become an asset of the Army Research Laboratories for their numerical testing and simulation of these equipments in different environments.
