Is this question about importing some known set of equations into Mathematica or about determining the appropriate equations? If it is the latter, much more information is required (such as the geometry, all necessary constitutive relations for material and fluid properties, equations to simulate flows near all the surfaces, etc) On 3/3/07, Robert Pigeon <robert.pigeon at videotron.ca> wrote: > Greetings, > Does any one worked out the rigid body equations (in 3D) in a notebook?
