Homework Help: Fluid Dynamics (finite difference or finite volume)

  1. Apr 29, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'm trying to create a program which models fluids using the finite difference method

    2. Relevant equations
    This is what I'm looking for:)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I guess at first I'll just simulate incompressible fluids and then maybe move to compressible fluids. I'm not sure whether to use finite difference or finite volume methods. Would finite volume would be better suited to simulate incompressible fluids and finite difference would be better for compressible?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
