- Engineering : The profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to economically use the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind.
- Physics : The study of forces and energies in space and time.
- Aeronautic engineering : Add brief definition or description
- Aerospace engineering : The branch of engineering that concerns aircraft, spacecraft, and related topics.
- Chemical engineering : The field of engineering that deals with industrial and natural processes involving the chemical, physical or biological transformation of matter or energy into forms useful for mankind, economically and safely without compromising the environment
- Computational fluid dynamics : Add brief definition or description
- Mechanical engineering : The branch of engineering concerned with the utilisation of the basic laws of mathematics, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and system dynamics in order to create unique solutions to physical problems.
- Nuclear engineering : The field of engineering whose main focus is to use the energy provided by nuclear fission or fusion for practical purposes.
- Hydrodynamic testing : During an high-speed event driven by explosives, such as the implosion of a fission device, the high pressures and temperatures cause metals and other materials to flow like liquids; the behavior can be described by fluid dynamics techniques; to observe these flows require high-speed flashes of X-rays or proton
- Air : A colorless, odorless and tasteless mixture of gases consisting mostly of nitrogen (N2) and oxygen (O2) which is the part of Earth's atmosphere that humans and all other animals breathe in order to obtain the oxygen needed to sustain life.
- Choked flow : A limiting point for the mass flow rate of a gas which occurs under specific conditions when the gas flows through a restriction (such as a valve, a convergent-divergent nozzle, the hole in an orifice plate, or a leak in a gas pipeline or other gas container) into a lower pressure environment.
- Compressible flow : Add brief definition or description
- Compressibility factor (gases) : A thermodynamic property for modifying the ideal gas law to account for behavior of real gases.
- Density (chemistry) : A measure of the mass per unit volume of a gas, liquid or solid.
- Gas : One of the major states of matter (i.e., gas, liquid, solid and plasma).
- Gas compressor : A machine that increases the pressure of a gas by reducing its volume.
- Hydraulics : Add brief definition or description
- Incompressible flow : Add brief definition or description
- Mach effect : As a result of very large explosions in air, an interaction between the direct shock wave and the shock wave(s) reflected from the ground, which causes combined overpressure on the surface of the earth
- Overpressure : The difference from normal air pressure caused by the shock wave generated by an explosion.
- Pressure : A ratio equal to the force applied perpendicular to the surface of the area divided by that area (force/area).
- Pump : A device used to move fluids, such as liquids or slurries, from a lower pressure to a higher pressure adding energy to the system to overcome the difference in pressure.
- Venturi tube : A section of piping consisting of an inlet converging conical section leading to a small diameter cylindrical section called the throat, followed by a diverging conical section leading to a cylindrical exit.
