Abstract

As the ASME Division of Fluids Engineering celebrates its 90th Anniversary, I make a broad-brush sweep of progress in the field of fluid mechanics during this period. Selected theoretical, numerical, and experimental advances are described. The inventions of laser and computer have profound effects on humanity, but their influence on fluid mechanics is particularly elucidated in this review.
