ab: Summary: This article illustrates how a computer algebra system, such as
Maple, can assist in the study of theoretical fluid mechanics, for both
Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids. The continuity equation, the stress
equations of motion, the Navier-Stokes equations, and various
constitutive equations are treated, using a full, but straightforward,
notation. Programs are presented that can produce these equations in
various coordinate systems, as is the algebra system used to obtain
solutions for specific examples in parallel and rotational flow.
