Fluid Mechanics Interactive Simulations

Simulations whose names
are in blue will play in most browsers, but most were programmed in
Mathematica, and the CDF versions, which can be downloaded, are significantly
faster and can be used offline with the Wolfram CDF plug-in. The QUIZ simulations follow a step-by-step procedure that requires
user input. Most simulations are also available at Wolfram
Demonstration Project.
