'Fluids at Brown' as the Center is known serves to promote research at Brown University in fluid mechanics, through the development of research collaborations, seminars, the sharing of intellectual knowledge and the coordination of graduate courses. Participating members of the Center include faculty from the Division of Applied Mathematics, School of Engineering, Department of Earth, Environmental & Planetary Sciences and the Department of Physics. The Center organizes regular seminars on topics relating to fluid mechanics.
Fluid mechanics is an enabling science that describes dynamics over a wide spectrum of scales, ranging from the global scales of climate and ocean dynamics to the transport of suspended proteins through nanopores. New fundamental research challenges involving fluid dynamics continue to emerge in engineering, the physical or biological sciences, mathematics and scientific computation.
