Section 4: Fluid Flow

Generalizations of fluid flow

In the simplest case the local state of a fluid is characterized by its velocity and perhaps density. But there are many situations where there are also other quantities relevant, notably temperature and chemical composition. And it turns out to be rather straightforward to generalize cellular automaton fluids to handle these.
