News The first practical self-learning module of Prof. Lorena Barba's Computational Fluid Dynamics class, as taught between 2010 and 2013 at Boston University is now available.

The module is called 12 steps to Navier-Stokes equations (yes, it's a tongue-in-cheek allusion of the recovery programs for behavioral problems). It was inspired by the ideas of Dr. Rio Yokota, who was a post-doc in Barba's lab, and has been refined by Prof. Barba and her students over several semesters teaching the course.
