With today’s developments at Twitter, we have some new faces at QOTO. If you are one of them, welcome! Please take a minute to familiarise yourself with the rules.

I’m a fluid dynamicist and a volunteer moderator here. Mostly this just means I spend some time deleting spammers, but I also deal with reports of rules violations. If you’re considering reporting another user, please read this post for a description of how users from different instances are subject to different rules.

If you have questions, ask away! We have a genuinely helpful community here and it’s likely someone will be able to point you in the right direction.

@khird Also more about what "I’m a fluid dynamicist" means - that would be good!

I assume that's you're doing lots of things dynamically but all in one chain or in a fluidly manner like you mention for qoto... but also maybe for other stuff,... feel free to say how it works for you or the theory / practical... thanks

@freeschool That’s an interesting guess - but fluid dynamics is the study of fluids (liquids and gases) in motion. It’s relevant to fields from meteorology to aerospace to resource extraction.

The theory is underpinned by the famous Navier-Stokes equations. On the practical side, the wind tunnel is a useful mechanism for studying many types of real-world problems.

@khird lol I thought not surely it's not that because of the context of Twitter and moderating... but I guess yes I saw this also

So your flying kites in wind tunnels and blowing gases into air?... Ok I guess I'm fishing for examples :) and real-world examples... thanks for link and interesting having you here!
