Next-generation transport

(University of California - Santa Barbara) For most of us, fluid dynamics and mechanics aren't particularly significant -- that is, until we're white-knuckling it on a bumpy plane ride or trying to stay buoyant in unusually bubbly water. The way we navigate through air and water may one day be improved thanks to UC Santa Barbara researchers studying the complex properties and interactions of fluids.
