The paper "A Universal Description of Pseudorapidity Distributions in Both Nucleus-Nucleus and p-p Collisions at Currently Available Energies" presents a description of relativistic hydrodynamics model which describes the pseudorapidity distributions of charged particles measured in both nucleus-nucleus and p-p collisions at currently available energies.

It has been claimed that spreading dynamics on such surfaces follow either hydrodynamics (4,9,33,38,39) (e.g., due to viscous dissipation in the bulk motion of liquid) or molecular-kinetic theory (40,41) (e.g., dissipation due to friction from molecular attachment/ detachment at the vicinity of liquid contact line on solid surface).
KCS is one of the three hullforms explored in Gothenburg 2010 workshop on numerical ship hydrodynamics. The other hullforms explored in this workshop are Korean VLCC designed at MOERI (KVLCC2) and US combatant model (DTMB 5415).

This paper presents an innovative propulsion system approach for a new vehicle, resulting in efficient maneuvering through the exploitation of unsteady hydrodynamics. The vehicle swims by coordinating the motion of four biology-inspired high-lift flapping hydrofoils that are attached to its rigid hull.
Paul English, marine leader, GE Power Conversion, stresses that Inovelis is a new concept that brings better performance -- both improved thrust capability as well as improved hydrodynamics. The combination maximises performance of pod technology and brings fuel efficiency.
The Haslar hydrodynamics facility, owned and run by defence group Qinetiq, provides advice and support on submarine manoeuvring and control to the sea systems group and the in-service submarines project team at the Ministry of Defence's Abbey Wood site in Bristol.
The Varna-based Bulgarian Ship Hydrodynamics Center (BSHC) has been praised by a Bulgarian minister for managing to sell its high-level discoveries.
Dynaflow Inc!s 3DynaFS, Three-Dimensional Dynamics of Free Surfaces, is a general computation fluid dynamics (CFD) software suite created for the study of large deformations and interactions involved in bubble dynamics, cavitation, two-phase flows, surface waves, ship hydrodynamics, and fluid/structures interactions.
