Hi all, Sorry if this topic has been done a lot. I'm not very good at searching. It seems to me that fluid mechanics is left to engineers and mathematicians (in particular, applied mathematicians? I guess they study the concept of flow?) What gives? Engineering department here at Cornell has fluid mechanic courses for different types of engineers (chemical engineers, applied engr physics) but none in physics dept (and I think phys. departments generally don't have fluid mechanics courses), so maybe it's just Cornell, but it seems that it's something that is either pretty applied (--> engrs) or very theoretical approach (very mathematical treatment --> applied mathematicians/mathematicians) Thanks! RedAnsar Edit: If this is the wrong subforum, my apologies as well for that. I wasn't sure where to post this query.
