fluiddyn 0.0.14

framework for studying fluid dynamics.

Package Documentation

FluidDyn is a framework for studying fluid dynamics. Most of the features are actually implemented in other packages (fluidlab, fluidimage, fluidsim). The base package fluiddyn contains basic utilities.

FluidDyn is the evolution of two other codes previously developed by Pierre Augier (CNRS researcher at LEGI, Grenoble): Solveq2d (a numerical code to solve fluid equations in a periodic two-dimensional space with a pseudo-spectral method, developed at KTH, Stockholm) and FluidLab (a toolkit to do experiments, developed in the G. K. Batchelor Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at DAMTP, University of Cambridge).

Key words and ambitions: fluid dynamics research with Python (2.7 or >= 3.3); modular, object-oriented, collaborative, tested and documented, free and open-source software.


FluidDyn is distributed under the CeCILL-B License, a BSD compatible french license.


You can get the source code from Bitbucket or from the Python Package Index.

The development mode is often useful. From the root directory, run:

python develop


From the root directory:

make tests

Or, from the root directory or any of the “test” directories:

python -m unittest discover
