fluid flow

fluid flow
fluid flow,
Physics. any characteristic movement of fluid particles, such as laminar flow and turbulent flow: »

Using this method, scientists can study what they call “fluid flow,” such as water running out of faucets or through pipes in your house, or the meandering of rivers and streams (Science News Letter).
