Science Journey: "Fluid Dynamics: From Disturbances to Turbulence"

Friday, November 20, 2020
10:00am to 11:00am
Add to Cal
Online Event
Salvador Gomez, Graduate Student, Engineering and Applied Science, Caltech,
  • Public Event

The storms we see on Jupiter and the motions in a coffee cup can be explained by analyzing the equations of fluid dynamics. These equations are used to design airplanes, predict the weather, and even make art!

How do engineers and scientists solve these equations?

In this program, Salvador Gomez will explain how the important information can be identified to simplify the problems so that engineers and scientists can make predictions in fluid flows.

This online event is free, but reservations are required.
