In this chapter, the examples of modern fluid flow applications in two areas are considered. In biology and medicine, the applications of peristaltic flow and of kϵ and kω turbulence models are presented. In engineering, the applications of peristaltic flow models and of direct simulation of turbulence methods are analyzed. Examples are discussed briefly in the same way as it done for heat transfer models in Chapter 4, giving only the mathematical model of problem formulation, conception of solution approach and basic results. For convenience, examples are marked by letters a (analytical) or n (numerical) showing the type of solution employed. Additional information from Part III or at least from some Advanced Engineering Mathematics course should be sufficient for comprehension as well as the previous text.
