Many organisms must move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices, yet the dynamics are complex: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.

In these notes we study liquid layers, capillary interfaces and floating bodies. Leading term in the associated equilibrium equation for the interface is the mean curvature. In the case of liquid layers no volume constraint or contact angle occur.

The author demonstrates a stable Lagrangian solid modeling method, tracking the interactions of solid mass particles, rather than using a meshed grid. This method avoids the problem of tensile instability seen with Smooth Particle Applied Mechanics.

Introductory textbook for the fluid mechanics in undergraduate classes for engineering/science students. It can be used as a reference book for people who have at least some basics knowledge of science areas such as calculus, physics, etc.

This book provides the basics of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) appropriate to modern day undergraduate study. The aim is to bridge the gap between books focusing on detailed theoretical analysis and commercial software user's guides.
