The proposed project aims to simulate fluid dynamics based on the Immersed Boundary Method, studying the interaction between a fluid and elastic structures immersed in it. This project will introduce the student to biofluiddynamic, a not so common undergraduate subject, preparing him to pursue an academic career in the field.
