This chapter is devoted to application of PC methods to fluid flows governed by the transient Navier-Stokes equations. Attention is primarily focused on the development and application of Galerkin (intrusive) solution methods. Non-intrusive approaches, including Monte Carlo sampling and Gauss quadratures, are used in a limited fashion, primarily for the purpose of verifying intrusive predictions and for analyzing the efficiency of the corresponding solvers.
