fluiddyn 0.0.6a3

framework for studying fluid dynamics by experiments and simulations.

Package Documentation

FluidDyn is a framework for studying fluid dynamics by experiments and numerical simulations using Python. The project is still in a testing stage so it is still pretty unstable and many of its planned features have not yet been implemented.

It is the evolution of two other projects 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 GPL compatible french License enabling reuse with few restrictions.


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

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

sudo python develop


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

python -m unittest discover
