Hi,

Is it possible for you to introduce a new forum for people interested in mathematical and theoretical aspects of fluid dynamics like hydrodynamic stability, transition to turbulence, boundary layer theory, and magnetohydrodynamics. You may call it "Hydrodynamic Stability."

This is a very important field which deals with those properties of fluids that cannot be explained with computers.

Each person could offer a forum on subject which he concerns with, e.g., it is good to organize the forums on finite elements method, on surface waves, on reactive flows, on CFD for parallel cluster calculation, etc. But such narrow special forums are seldom visitted and die quickly.

Thats a very narrow-minded view indeed. You need to learn more about fluid dynamics. The following link will be helpful:

i do not understand one thing that how reading fluid mechanics can cure narrow mindedness. i have been reading lot of fluid mechanics and still i am very narrow minded. :-D

I think "narrow-minded" was not the correct phrase albeit I meant it in terms of knowledge of fluid dynamics. Some people think fluid dynamics is all about CFD.

A rather apt phrase would have been "stupid and uninformed."

I would have thought that a web site called "cfd-online" would be "all about CFD". Maybe you should host your own site and call it "fd-online"?

cfd is nothing without fd. cfd depends on fd.

Without fd you will be left with a c which is of no use.

You should host your own website called c-online.

Feel free to discuss that here. If there is enough interest in the subject and it creates a lot of traffic we'll open a new forum especially for that topic. Opening new forums does not automatically create a lot of posts about that subject and I don't think that it is a good strategy to open a forum before we see the need for it, ie before the subject creates a lot of traffic in this main forum. A new forum without the necessary traffic to sustain it will just die quickly.

This sounds good to me. I would be especially interested in a form that discusses theoretical aspects of Fluid dynamics. I think it would bring alot more traffic to the website and allow people to develop their fluid dynamics skills in parallel with their CFD skills!

I will be interested in theoretical and mathematical aspects of fluid dynamics. There are a lot of researchers working in the field of theoretical fluid dynamics. Excellent research in the field is being conducted at Imperial College, University of Manchester University College London, Cambridge, Glasgow, Essex etc. in the UK.

CFD has everything to do with fd. But I guess the purpose of hosting this site was to do with the former only. Theoretical fluid dynamics is a different arena all together if you talking about potential flow theory and exact solutions to simiplified problems. You fail to see the purpose of this site ,as the name suggest, where people tend to discuss more on the numerical issues associated with solving fluid dynamics equations. As for the concern of introducing a new forum why don't you first try posting your questions here and see how many do respond and how long it survives....
