4434Compressible Aerodynamics Calculator
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75146
This calculator is designed to replace tables (e.g. NACA 1135) in performing basic compressible aerodynamics calculations. It is designed for those learning, teaching or using compressible aerodynamics. It computes (both forward and backward) isentropic flow, normal shock and oblique shock relations. It also has a scratch pad for doing the additional arithmetic usually needed to solve compressible aero problems.Buoyant Force II

The motion of an object placed in a fluid is simulated. The densities of the block and fluid, and the coefficient of friction between the block and fluid, can be changed. Oscillatory motion is seen as the block comes to rest, in cases where it can float.CFD Online

This course introduces fluid mechanics, the study of how and why fluids (both gaseous and liquid) behave the way they do. This course focuses on applications to two specialized situations: flow in pipes and flow around submerged objects (wings for example). In particular, the student will learn to calculate pressure drops in piping systems and forces around submerged objects when exposed to flow. The course concludes with a brief introduction to the complexities of compressible flow, as opposed to flow in which the fluid density is constant. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Mechanical Engineering 201)Fluids
