About the package

The purpose of this package is to enable easy setup and solution of viscous incompressible flows about bodies of various shapes. Documentation can be found at https://JuliaIBPM.github.io/ViscousFlow.jl/latest.

ViscousFlow.jl is registered in the general Julia registry. To install, type e.g.,

] add ViscousFlow

Then, in any version, type

julia> using ViscousFlow

For examples, consult the documentation or see the example Jupyter notebooks in the Examples folder.

Many of the core aspects of the fluid-body interaction are based on the Method of Immersed Layers [1], which is an extension of the immersed boundary projection method [2].
