WolframAlpha Fluid MechanicsFlow around a cylinder with data

Above: Entering the term "fluid dynamics" produces a list of related terms, including "vortex potential," "flow around a cylinder," "Bernoulli's equation," and "Blasius displacement thickness." Choosing "flow around a cylinder" (left) gives formulae and a graph related to the phenomenon (right).

WolframAlpha provides a formidable reference tool for researchers working in any field. It is easy to use, and offers a stunningly concise array of information.
