Fluid Mechanics News

Fluid mechanics is a branch of physics that studies the behavior of fluids (liquids, gases, and plasmas) and the forces on them. It encompasses two main sub-disciplines: fluid statics, which deals with fluids at rest, and fluid dynamics, which involves fluids in motion. This field is critical in a wide range of applications, including engineering systems, environmental science, and biological systems. Fluid mechanics is used to understand and predict the flow behavior in various situations, such as the aerodynamics of vehicles, the flow of blood in arteries, and the movement of air over the Earth’s surface. Advanced topics in fluid mechanics also incorporate the effects of compressibility, viscosity, and turbulence, enhancing its complexity and applicability to real-world problems.
