Timo van Opstal

Department / Institute
Mechanical Engineering
Group Van Brummelen


In 2003, he started the Bachelor in Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft. Following in 2006, he specialized in Aerodynamics for a Masters degree. This included an internship at the R&D department of EADS, focussing on numerical methods for aeroacoustics. In 2008, the study culminated in a thesis project on the numerical solution of a stochastic, nonlinear, aeroelastic stability problem. After completing university in the summer of 2009, he was enticed to continue in the field of numerics and fluid-structure interaction in the context of his current Ph.D. project on airbag simulation. As a first step, a steady 2D simulation is developed using the Boundary Element Method to solve the interior Stokes flow.
