A Day in the Life of a Fluid Dynamicist

Featured Video Play Icon

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite videos from last year’s Gallery of Fluid Motion. It’s a short film entitled “A Day in the Life of a Fluid Dynamicist.” Although some parts of it probably only apply to fluid dynamicists (Navier-Stokes equations, anyone?) a lot of the activities depicted are common to everyone. The film does a nice job of highlighting some of the many examples of fluid dynamics that we come across in our daily lives. As a film by scientists made for scientists, though, you may find some of the terminology obscure. Never fear! This week on FYFD, I’ll be breaking down some of the film’s segments, explaining what they mean, and showing you just how much fluid dynamics you experience every day! (Video credit: S.
