Fluid Mechanics

Fluid mechanics is found everywhere, both in nature and industrial applications, and plays a vital role in the development of many future products.

Anything that involves a fluid (gas or liquid) is fluid mechanics. These fluids may or may not contain particles such as raindrops in the air, red blood cells flowing in blood or the fibres found in paper pulp flows. The applications are, for example, found in various energy conversion processes such as wind and wave power, food process industry as well as conventional combustion engines, but also in vehicle design, where the focus can be directed towards optimising wings on aircraft or minimising fuel consumption.
