Fluids Engineering

Fluids Engineering

is the specialty of fluid mechanics, a.k.a. computational fluid dynamics (CFD) when it is digitized and modeled. Fluids engineering and the related sciences focus on what happens inside pumps, turbines, compressors, pipelines, and structures such as dam spillways; in medical and biological devices; lubrication; in hydraulic/pneumatic systems; hydrodynamics (waves), and in aerodynamics (shear and boundary layers). The field covers both compressible and incompressible fluids.
