Fluid Dynamics

Fluid Dynamics

Fluid dynamics is the study of the movement and behaviour of liquids and gases, a sub-discipline within the broader scope of fluid mechanics.

This field has a wide range of applications, from designing efficient water supply systems to understanding natural phenomena like tsunamis and hurricanes. Fluid dynamics is also crucial in aerospace engineering, where understanding how air flows around objects is essential for the design of various aircraft and spacecraft. The principles of fluid dynamics are also applied in medical research, particularly in understanding blood flow in the human body.
