Introductory Fluid Dynamics
Fluid dynamics is concerned with mathematically describing the motion of fluids. The equations that describe fluid motion are very complicated and require numerical methods to solve. This publication provides an introduction to the concepts, equations, and methods used to describe the flow of incompressible fluids. The material is limited to analysis methods that can be done by hand. These methods provide an important introduction to the conservation principles employed by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software.
