Overview to Numerical and Experimental Techniques

In the previous chapters, the governing equation and analytical solution of the equation was presented for flows in relatively simple geometries. However, problems encountered in most practical situations are much more difficult, involving complex geometry, unclear boundary conditions, transition from one flow regime to another, and other complications. Obtaining an analytical solution in these cases is virtually not possible. One therefore resorts to either numerical methods for solution of the governing equation or experiments. In this chapter, we briefly comment on these techniques, while details can be found in specialized books and papers on the subject.
