Ch 09 (1) Changzheng Huang 3 1. External flow examples External flow refers to the flow around an object that is completely surrounded by the fluid. External flow examples include flows around, Airplanes, missiles, automobiles, birds, and Ships, submarines, fishes, etc. External flows involving air are often termed aerodynamics.
