Fluid Flow Modeling
Physics distinguishes four basic forms of matter: solids, liquids, gases, and plasmas. The last three forms fall in the category of fluids. Fluid is a material that can flow, meaning fluids cannot sustain stress in the equilibrium state. Any time a force is applied to a fluid, the latter starts and keeps moving even when the force is no longer active. Fluid mechanics studies flows of fluids under the principal laws of mechanics. Examples of real fluid flows are numerous ranging from oceans and atmosphere to gaseous stars. The relevant applications include meteorology, engineering, and astrophysics to name only a few.
