Department of Mathematics

  1. Research Group I: Fluid Mechanics

Fluids Mechanics is the partition of physics which comprises the study of fluids and the forces on them. Fluid mechanics can be allocated into fluid statics is the study of fluids at rest; and fluid dynamics is the study of the effect of forces on fluid motion. It is a branch of continuum mechanics, a subject which models matter without using the information that it is made out of atoms; that is, it models matter from a macroscopic perspective rather than from microscopic. Fluid mechanics, especially fluid dynamics, is an active field of research with many problems that are partly or wholly unsolved.
