RESEARCH IN FLUID DYNAMICS: Meeting National Needs

The science of fluid dynamics describes the motion of liquids and gases and their interaction with solid bodies. It is a broad, interdisciplinary field that touches almost every aspect of our daily lives, and it is central to much of science and engineering. Fluid dynamics impacts defense, homeland security, transportation, manufacturing, medicine, biology, energy and the environment. Predicting the flow of blood in the human body, the behavior of microfluidic devices, the aero-dynamic performance of airplanes, cars, and ships, the cooling of electronic components, or the hazards of weather and climate, all require a detailed understanding of fluid dynamics, and therefore substantial research.
