Hey friends & nerds! 👋
Welcome to the Sunday Science Newsletter where we explore science, systems & tools that help us become smarter scientists.
💦 The Inflowencers – Heroes of Fluid Mechanics
In his latest blog post, my simulation buddy Simon Fischer takes a look at the unsung heroes of fluid mechanics, highlighting the contributions of individuals who have made significant contributions to our understanding of this fascinating field. From mathematicians to engineers, Fischer shines a spotlight on the figures who have helped shape our modern understanding of fluid dynamics.
Whether you're a seasoned expert or simply interested in learning more about the subject, this post is a must-read for anyone interested in the history and evolution of fluid mechanics!
🌀 What is Turbulence?
Physicists use the Navier-Stokes equations to describe fluid flows, taking into account viscosity, velocity, pressure and density. But because of turbulence in fluids, proving that the equations always make sense is one of the hardest problems in physics and mathematics.
💻 MATLAB with Python Book
Engineers and scientists that I meet every day think about MATLAB & Python as MATLAB vs Python. The goal of this repository by Yann Debray is to prove to them that it is possible to think about it as MATLAB with Python.

💦 Can Quantum Fluids Explain Turbulence in Classical Fluids?
It is clear that Quantum fluid creates turbulence because of quantized vortices due to mutual friction by excitation. This leads to an effective kinematic viscosity that has the same units and scale as that of viscosity in classical fluids. But this is purely a numerical coincidence! Nonetheless, an important area to investigate.
🚀 Engineering Tool of the Week – SfePy: Simple Finite Elements in Python
SfePy is a software for solving systems of coupled partial differential equations (PDEs) by the finite element method in 1D, 2D and 3D. It can be viewed both as black-box PDE solver, and as a Python package which can be used for building custom applications. The word “simple” means that complex FEM problems can be coded very easily and rapidly.
📚 Book of the Week
Notes on Computational Fluid Dynamics: General Principles
Notes on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) was written for people who use CFD in their work, research or study, providing essential knowledge to perform CFD analysis with confidence. It offers a modern perspective on CFD with the finite volume method, as implemented in OpenFOAM and other popular general-purpose CFD software.
💻 App of the Week – Notion
I’ve been using Notion for more than 2 years now to capture ideas, create to-do lists and plan whole courses and marketing campaigns in it. A super useful tool that I highly recommend to any student and professional as a knowledge management system.
Notion is a single space where you can think, write, and plan. Capture thoughts, manage projects, or even run an entire company — and do it exactly the way you want.
