 July 16, 1999, 12:40 Fluid Dynamics #1 Rajiv Kumar Guest   Posts: n/a Hello, I'm am a high school student who is deeply interested in fluid dynamics and how it works with chaos. I plan on doing an experiment dealing with both subject matters. I needed help by some of the distinquished people here. I would like to know where I could get resources of where I can learn more about fluid dynamics, what kinds of calculations are involved, equations, variables. Please help me as I am looking forward to performing an intense experiment for three years. Thank you for help.

I sdon't know much of the experimental things but i think you can read some Mechanical or Civil Engineering TEXT BOOKS and discuss with the faculty of engineering what they do in practicles in the engineering syllabus. Best of luck

Read the book that yogesh suggested, go through the libraries reading through books on fluid dynamics, physics, and math if you haven't already done so. Write down all the things that you know about fluids. Then write down all the things you wish to know. Make a step by step plan with target dates and method that you will use to find out what you don't know. If you have three years to do this, try to stick with learning those things that have already been done and written down in books and articles. Then when you get to a point in college where you have access to nice fluid dynamics experimental equipment, you will have a very solid background. Study math the hardest. Don't forget to take time to play games and sports with your friends. Soccer is fun. And you get to think about fluid dynamics of the ball going through the air as well as collision physics after you have kicked it. Good luck.

I realize that I'm getting into some very deep topics with this experiment, but i like challenges and if I put my mind to it I can accomplish it. Of course, one can't win the Nobel Prize in one day. Well anyways, thanks for your support and if I have any questions in the future I'll be sure to contact all of you who have donated these hints. Thanks Again!
