Abstract

Developments in fluid mechanics education, both past and present, are surveyed. After some historical notes, facts and opinions are presented on various topics: a previous FED review article, teaching methods, interaction with students, the use of props, software, computational fluid dynamics, compact disk and internet text material, thermal science connections, fluids laboratories, multimedia and information technology. It is concluded that, although there are uncertainties and cautions in adding high-tech applications to traditional methods of presentation, the teaching of fluid mechanics is in good condition and constantly improving.
