In the paper, a three-dimensional deployment algorithm based on ideal fluid model for sensor networks is proposed. On this basis, the proposed ideal fluid model is analysed, and the concept of flow field model is applied in deployment of wireless sensor networks. Sensor networks are abstracted as ideal fluid, with nodes as fluid micelles. In the deployment process, motion of nodes follows momentum conservation law of fluid micelle. Moreover, a simulation experiment is performed in this paper with the proposed deployment algorithm as the experimental subject. Coverage and uniformity are 2 indexes employed to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm. Shown by the simulation result, the three-dimensional deployment algorithm based on ideal fluid model for sensor networks leads to good deployment effect.
