Fluid mechanics underpins many established and emerging UK industries as well as critical societal issues such as air pollution, energy consumption, climate science, biology and medicine. Fluid mechanics is particularly strong in the UK, with world-class activity at several dozen institutions, involving hundreds of scientists and engineers. These institutions and individuals need to work together in order to benefit from the recent trend towards funding a small number of large grants. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us.
