The application of the finite element method to fluid mechanics problems is not as advanced as it is in solid mechanics. The main reason seems to be that the finite difference method has proved very successful in solving fluid flow problems. Furthermore, the large investment of time and money made in the development of finite difference software naturally led to a reluctance to consider the application of other methods. This situation is gradually changing and the finite element method is now becoming a standard approximation tool used in the solution of fluid mechanics problems.
