[In 250 B.C., Archimedes (ancient Greeks, 287–212 B.C., as shown in Fig. 1.1), commissioned by King Syracuse of Sicily to examine the crown, studied the principle of force balance and proposed the famous hydrodynamic buoyancy theorem, which is also a part of hydrostatics. During this period, the...
[Aerodynamics is the study of the law of air motion and force when there is relative motion between the object and air, that is, when the object moves in the air or the object does not move, but air moves around the object.]
[Liquid dynamics is the study of the law of the liquid at rest and motion. Because the main research medium is water, it is also called hydrodynamics. Human beings began to study the laws of the static and motion of liquids very early.]
[Computational fluid dynamics is a science rapidly evolving since 1960s, which constitutes three branches of modern fluid dynamics with experimental fluid dynamics as well as theoretical fluid dynamics. Moreover, computational fluid dynamics play a more prominent role in industries, especially...
[Experimental fluid mechanics, theoretical fluid mechanics, and computational fluid mechanics constitute the three branches of fluid mechanics. Experimental fluid mechanics includes experimental aerodynamics and experimental fluid dynamics, involving nearly all fields of fluid mechanics.]
[The wind tunnel facility is the most widely used pipe-type device for testing aerodynamics and the development of aircraft. Through a tubular device, airflow can be artificially generated and controlled to simulate the flow of air around an aircraft or an object, and the force of airflow on the...
[Flying, as the name implies, is flying in the air and flying in the sky. What is the sky like? Qu Yuan (300 BC) wrote in “Tian Wen”: “At the beginning of the ancient times, who passed the Tao to this universe?]
